tested out chain stitch binding and coptic stitch binding which I might possibly use for my book 
need to consider the number of pages I have and the paper weight that I’m going to use in order to decide what binding would work best 

will look into japanese binding and see how I could manipulate it to fit my concept better

perfect bound my flipbooks. covers are debossed with metal type using the letterpress.

creased and folded all my posters. posters folded down nicely, though I would still prefer it to be of thinner stock. but a thinner stock probably won’t go through the large format printer. so I’m happy with what I’ve got now. 

solution to a flexible binding where you can take out some of the pages. not sure if I like the idea of having all these holes punched onto the pages though

did book binding workshop ! 

tried out the japanese bind and circle accordian bind. 

the japanese bind is surely easier, as pages are individual; whereas the accordian one requires some accurate measurements to match up the pages and covers nicely. 

another type of book binding. this looks more complicated than the traditional coptic bind. but i like how the stitch goes onto the cover/back of the book, can be used as design of front/back cover
