BC Bookbinding by BCcreativity BC Bookbinding by BCcreativity
This is a lost art that I have always had a fascination with.
I have been creating leather bound books now for about 6 years.
I also marble my own paper and sew the headbands. These books follow 16th century techniques with authentic supported cord.
Of course I have added my own techniques to them as well.
Cheers!

I just wanted to make books. I love the simplicity of its contents yet the complexity of a completed creation.
I am self taught with the assistance of tutorials, books videos, and advice from others over the years.
Cheers

It's gorgeous, I love the rustic effect of the metal clasps!

Where do you buy the metal pieces? I make mock leather effect books and am yet to find where to buy the metal embellishments.

Some I purchase on Etsy.com and the remainder I create myself.
