The second book taught us a different book binding technique. The cover was a piece of vinyl or plastic wallpaper. We glued it on and then heated it to make it nice and snug to the cover of the book - kind of like shrink wrap.
You can see that we have something like booklets in the book - we had to sew each booklet into place through the spine of the book.
This class was taught by Dana Edwards at Paper Vineyard. She does beautiful design work. I think I will keep one book and give one away as a Christmas gift.
