Paper and stitches
Author: Monica Langwe
Paper is an easily accessible material with great opportunities for creation. Whether you use fine handmade paper or recycle old postcards, you can make beautiful notebooks, albums and boxes.
In the book Paper and stitches you get clear descriptions and step-by-step illustrations of how to make notebooks, photo albums, books to store things in, cloth-covered boxes, personal greeting cards and wired booklets where the embroidery enthusiast can experiment with different stitch combinations. Leather-bound diaries and Chinese sewing cases are projects that make slightly higher demands but make the book suitable for both beginners and more experienced.
Bookbinder and artist Monica Langwe has bound books for the pope, made anniversary boxes for the Vasaloppet medals, a sketchbook for Crown Princess Victoria and many other honorable assignments. Here she shares her solid knowledge so that everyone can become their own bookbinder.
