Discover how beautiful and functional a handbound book can be with this “fresh look at an old art” featuring 20 creative and approachable projects (Library Journal, starred review).

In Bound, graphic designer and professional bookbinder Erika Ekrem explains everything you need to know to create your own beautifully handcrafted books. With her whimsical and stylish approach to traditional techniques, and the use of upcycled and repurposed materials, Ekrem has devised creative fun for book artists of all levels. Dividing projects into three categories—Vintage, Nature, and Leather—she takes you step-by-step through the process of making books from mason jars and seashells; a classic leather-bound photo album; and other works of art.
