Today was spent creating some fun, customized books for my friends :) Made a recent trip to Ikea and found some really fun fabric! With awesome textile and a relaxing week, decided to use the time to do some book making. Started by cutting the inner pages to its sizes and thermal bound them. Then, cut out cardboard for the covers and wrapped them with the fabric. Viola!! 5 new books done by the end of the day :) Definitely a fun project to work on and they do make great gifts!

Many funky fabrics in Ikea - bought the one at the bottom.

After spending the day in my University workshop, 5 books were done! :)

Various types, sizes and thickness

#1: She wanted a book where allows her to refill pages and she did not fancy having a hardcover book. Thus, tried making a spiral bound book with a customized book jacket. That way she will be able to insert any new spiral bound A5 book into it :)

#2: This is for my friend's 21st birthday. 21st is always a special year! For this, I decided to do a square book with the book divided in half ( half white paper- half offwhite paper ) with birthday messages written in a fold out in between the book.

#3: These are for 2 friends who do not really understand what bookmaking is. Decided to make them one :)

Combine both to make it one design

More summer projects coming up!
