I thought I'd add some photos of my studio so you can see where you're books are made.
Bookbinding can be done in a large studio with heavy equipment or in a small space in your livingroom with a bone folder, glue and some patio stones for weights. I happen to be the latter.
This is a double sided book called a Do Si Do book. The front side features tips on international travel, while the back side features local travel.
This is the back of the book which features a local transit map. The book is one long sheet folded in an accordion fold.
