japanese stab binding…

japanese stab binding…and pamphlet stitch…hmm, thought i was going to a drawing class at the gallery of modern art but it turned into a bit of a book binding session instead – which turned out to be way more useful by the way. Was introduced to the joys of 2 new tools: the bone folder (and yes i made all the – obvious – jokes possible) and the prick (yep…), anyway don’t know how i lived without them, will never fold a piece of paper without a bone folder again (you use it to score your paper so that you get a crisp clean perfect crease -folding by hand actually damages the paper’s structure)!
