How to Perfect Bind a Book



This video tutorial would have made life so much easier a few years back when I was in design school. Every time I have tried to make a perfect bound book, the pages always fell out or I was stuck with a gooey mess that warped when dried. Judy makes it seem so simple.

Check out Judy Lee's shop. She makes perfect bound journals/sketchbooks that feature photography and illustrations as covers and have an inner pocket for loose papers. I love that she makes them out of sugarcane, recycled paper, and random scraps of paper.

Thank you, Judy!
