Herringbone Bindery Etsy introduces Kits

December 3, 2013 by Erin Fletcher


Bookbinding kits are now available at the Herringbone Bindery Etsy shop. These particular kits supply the materials and instructions to bind your own blank flatback journal. Each kit includes paste paper made right here in the bindery with five different patterns available. 


1. 6 signatures for text block
2. 2 colored endpaper folios
3. 2 covers and 1 spine piece
4. 1 piece of bookcloth
5. 2 sheets of decorative paper
6. headband material
7. 1 piece of mull
8. 1 needle and thread
9. 1 piece of linen sewing tapes
10. 1 punching jig
11. 1 set of instructions

The instructions were written, designed and illustrated by me. They are easy to follow for any skill level and each page includes helpful drawings to illustrate those more tricky steps.
