Handbound Books: Coptic Binding

Assalamualaikum w.b.t. & Hello everyone...

Handbound books are perfect as travel journal, scrapbook, sketch book and also personalized gift that you can decorate yourself. I guess it is good to learn new things everyday. I'm starting to like all this stuff more when I see smileys on faces, especially when I present this to all. YES, everyone loves free gifts, right?

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life”

"Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light"
~ Vera Nazarian ~

It reminds me how I always love beautiful books and diaries displayed in library and book stores. It is very easy for me to get jealous of my friends when I see their colourful-covered books and yet very expensive too. It is not that I didn't get chance to have books like that too but most of time, I avoid doing so.

Such a very nice books, have to be written with nice notes / stories and nice handwriting too, don't you think so? That was a main reason why I avoid buying books, no matter how much I wanted to own them. Heh, such a lame excuses!

Anyway, I learn binding books from this video. You may subscribe them for more videos.

I'm also planning on attending class and workshop for bookbinding slot, not only to meet creative people out there, but also to improve skills and gain so much info and experiences from them.

Let's spread joy of hand craft  and I hope you have a blissful day! Thank you!
