Biggest books in the world
Here are three examples of really big books. While the first is modern and is more of a gimmick than a book meant for reading, the other two are very real: it concerns a choir book from the 16th century (middle) and the famous Klencke Atlas from the same century (lower image). While they are rare, such large specimens, they do represent a tradition. Choir books, for example, needed to be big because they were used by a half circle of singers gathered around it in a church setting. If you are impressed with the size of these objects, just imagine turning their pages!

Drool. I’d love to be in that space.
I got some new spring dividers for measuring yesterday. I decided to make something with a picture window front page. So, here it is.
Two new books. Both are made using new a new style and stitch that I learned at my bookbinding course last week.

So nice. I winder where this is?
I love folio closures. I’m experimenting with oversized closures. I think I’ll try a fold over cover on my next book.

I’ve always wanted to make a bound notebook with signatures using card stock. This card stock is 140# or 270gsm. I love the formal structure of these notebooks.
