I Went to a Bookbinding Workshop!

This past weekend I went to a leatherbound bookbinding workshop. I spent 4 hours learning from the wise and affable Berwyn Hung of Praxium Press, which is just outside of Atlanta. Berwyn does workshops for a bunch of other book forms, as well as teaching letterpress and boxmaking. I’m absolutely going back as soon as I can fit it in. Here’s a look at my finished product. It’s about 6 inches on either side, bound in pigskin:

Here’s a glimpse of the nifty blue endpapers:

So yeah, I had a blast. You can see the full documentary of the workshop process in my Flickr photo set.
