Handmade book (part 1)

While browsing online for steampunk inspiration I stumbled upon tutorials of how to make your own handmade journals. I thought to myself that this would be an interesting project to undertake. So this next series of blog entries will be my endeavors to create a handmade book.

I folded thirty sheets of parchment colored paper into "signatures" of three sheets each, which yields six book pages (12 sides) in each signature. So the finished product should have 60 pages (120 sides).
The next step was to stitch the "signatures" together.

So far that is all I have done. As I do more steps, I'll update my blog.
