Coptic Bookbinding- Part One by mouse2cat Coptic Bookbinding- Part One by mouse2cat
Ok so here we have bookbinding tutorial part one. This one just goes over how to make your inner pages. The next will be a complete covers tutorial, and then a binding tutorial. I know it's a little lengthy but I would rather be complete.

If any part is unclear please don't be shy. Shoot me a comment and I will answer to the best of my abilities.

LOL I have beautiful handwriting I know :P

A coptic binding tutorial! Bless your fuzzy heart! I've been wanting to try this technique, but I couldn't really find a lot of good tutorials online. Thanks a bunch! I'll be giving this a try!

Heh I could hardly call this a "good" tutorial. More like "poorly drawn" But I was trying for clarity. If you give it a shot and run into any problem I would be happy to walk you through any difficulties.

I hope they end up being helpful to you. Everyone has been super supportive of my tutorials and it means a lot to me. If you do make yourself a sketchbook and get stuck please please snap a photo or something and I will help untangle as best as I can. Best of luck!

Nothing seems really confusing to me now, but the real test will be trying it. If I do it, I'll let you know the results. ;)
