Wunderbar! I learn the art of book binding, at the Kottishop, I'll never buy another sketch book from a store ever again....well never say never but such an amazing skill to learn. I really got into this workshop, it does help to have sewing skills and a passion for precision if you want to have a killer book spine and don't forget the importance of end sheets that cover the inside of the hard cover, thanks Cara for the German book of maps shown below. The sprightly instructor has a degree in old school typesetting+book binding from the US which you can still study, isn't that fantastic! Thank you, sorry i forget your name as I backdate my blog, shown on my left head down applying the glue for the cover.
The final product is shown below.
