Seeing a friend’s field drawing done in a handmade sketchbook inspired me to reacquaint myself with bookbinding. Past project materials were on hand to assemble a simple casebound book: a few full sheets of drawing paper for a single signature, decorative end pages, bookboard, cover fabric, and glue. Relearning the steps was slow but satisfying to complete. Now if I can find a dead rabbit to draw. Thanks for the inspiration, Adrienne Stein.
