Japanese Album

handmade booksLearn to make a hardcover photo album using the Japanese Stab Binding technique, which uses exposed stitches around the spine to bind single pages together.

The album could be designed around a special group of photos or pictures and would make a very special gift. It would be most suitable for 6x4in photos or postcards –bring them with you to match with materials available in the studio. If you have a group of original drawings, paintings or prints you’d like to bind in this way please get in touch so that we can discuss the options.

The album will be made from:

  • coloured card pages with ‘guards’–to allow for the thickness of the photos
  • interleaved with glassine or tracing paper (optional)
  • handmade and/or decorative paper or bookcloth on board covers
  • embroidery thread or ribbon stitched spine

A wide range of beautiful papers, coloured card and embroidery threads will be available to choose from.
