    Bookforms was a wonderful read As a longtime booklover, it was fascinating to see the process behind creating different types of binding Many required a huge amount of work and some specialist equipment, so I don t see myself launching into it anytime soon however, a few techniques were simpler, and were something anyone could attempt at home with a little time and patience This book, with its detailed step by step instructions, will appeal both to those keen to give bookbinding a try and th Bookforms was a wonderful read As a longtime booklover, it was fascinating to see the process behind creating different types of binding Many required a huge amount of work and some specialist equipment, so I don t see myself launching into it anytime soon however, a few techniq...
