Purgatory Pie Press


I picked up some good books at the library the other day. I'm trying to learn how to bind my own books. Check out this cool book design and letterpress printing company, Purgatory Pie Press. I'm using their book, How to Make Books to teach myself how to do Coptic binding for making sketchbooks. Here are some other photos of PPP's latest how-to books, as well as some of the creations they show in their books - that is, photos from their books about making books. Yeah.

Lots of trial and error, but so much fun.

I took a book binding workshop 2 summers ago. I've been wanting to do my own since then. Let me dig through my notes and see if I can find the name of the guy who taught it. AND we HAVE to go to Hollander's soon!
