As an ancient craft, there’s lots of history and techniques to learn and master. Bookbinding is the process of physically sewing or binding folder paper sheets together to make an enclosed book. Historically books were used to collect and preserve culturally important events throughout time, the art is now mainly used for craft activities like making your own sketchbooks, journals and zines.
