I recently went on a weekend bookbinding course which taught me how to bind properly. We learnt coptic stitch, japanese stab binding, how to cover boards in book cloth, accordian books, lap joints, how to test paper grain, pamphlet stitch, the list goes on...

I am hoping this will feed back into my practice and I will be able to create more books using these techniques.

Here are images of the ones I made:
