Concertina Books

When I was doing my City and Guilds course, one day we learnt how to make books. I made one of these little concertina books. A year or so ago I made lots of covers and used some of my painted papers to fold pages for them, but never got round to sticking them together. Today I finally finished them! (The magazine behind the first little book is what I was using to glue them on, by the way…)

I took lots of pictures when I was putting them together with a view to writing a tutorial for making them and posting it here. Hopefully tomorrow! The kids are on holiday now, but I will try and fit it in!

  1. They’re gorgeous. Is there no end to your talents?! I’d love to learn how make books again.

    We always used to make our own ‘best books’ at primary school. We’d make marbled paper for the covers. I remember it being a lot of fun and very satisfying. My memory’s a bit too foggy to remember how to do it though.

    Looking forward to seeing your tutorial.
