DIY – Bind or Repair your book

DIY – Bind or Repair your book

Try to use this Japanese bookbinding techniques next time you are going to bind books. All you need to have are an awl or thin wire brads, heavy thread, a needle, pencil, and ruler. You can also use this method to repair any paperback books:

Japanese Book Binding

    Does your “Boy Scout Handbook” look as though it has been read by a grizzly bear? Are pages falling out of your favorite novel? Has the cover come off of your copy of “The Hobbit?”

    You don’t have to buy new copies. It’s easy to repair paperback books using Japanese bookbinding techniques. Just punch four holes through the book near the spine and lash it together with needle and thread. You can make sketch books, scrapbooks or blank books this way, too. To make smaller books, fold several sheets of paper paper carefully into halves or quarters, clamp the stack together and punch and bind it, then slit the pages apart with a sharp knife afterwards, being careful not to cut the binding threads.

    To rebind a paperback you will need an awl or thin wire brads, heavy thread (eight times as long as the book ‘s height), a needle, pencil, and ruler. Use carpet thread, strong nylon thread, or waxed dental floss. If you use wire brads instead of an awl you’ll want a small hammer. Binder clips are useful, too. For a scrapbook or blank book cut covers from card stock or a file folder…

    Thanks James!

    Book summary: A Technique for Producing Ideas

    Kirby Ferguson has written a summary for the book A Technique for Producing Ideas. Generating good idea is a fine art, if you have mastered it you will be successful in many fields. The author of the book, James Young, describes five steps on a technique of combining old elements together:

    • Gather new material, both specific and general.
    • The Mental Digestive Process
    • Drop it
    • Poof, the idea appears
    • Work it

    Kirby also brought out his own thoughts – drop down every ideas you have in mind – You mind is not always as good as paper and sometimes it only stays for a short period of time. After you’ve dropped your ideas into your notepad, you will also have extra chances of linking and modifying your ideas together.
