I’m really enjoying making little pamphlet bindings right now. They’re simple: 16 pages of creamy unlined paper in a stiff cover, sewn with white or colored linen thread, cut to a neat size (14 cm x 10 cm), with rounded corners.
For the Vericon auction, which benefits a charity helping refugees in Rome, I’ve bound three sets of five pamphlet bindings in Florentine print paper laminated onto stiff colored card. I’ve waxed the cover s to strengthen and protect them.
Here are some of the patterns – there are different ones in different batches.
I love Florentine print paper, but I so rarely have an excuse to use any of it.
