I make books. Is that a papercraft? Is this the right board for me? Is this a case of lurk moar figgoot?

It's not really considered papercraft more bookbinding. Looks really cool though, good job!

That is fucking awesome. I mean... if you can't find another board for it I dont see the harm in sharing it here...

I think I might be on the best board for it, although this is definitely looks like it's out of the ordinary for here.

Nice books, man

How the hell did you do that, it's fricken amazing!

Op, these are great.
I'd love to see some shots of the process and read some details on how you do your work.

Fuck, OP.
I've been dabbling to eventually have the skills to repair the family bible.
I've always fancied myself a jack of all trades (in a good way) but lately everything is pushing me to specialize.
I will never be as good as you -- I won't even come close. So why bother dreaming of something that I (comparatively) don't really care about when I can focus on my passion?
The suck part is, I'm not sure what it is.

Sorry for the blogpost, but the main point is, good job, sir. Keep it up.

>>595953
Also, do you take requests or make sales?
>>
>>595957
Nice

This is a good approximation of the way that I have done it. It's not a bad tutorial if you can get past the reddity cringe. I tend to play around and experiment with the way I do it as I don't have any of the actual tools. If you were interested in getting started I'd buy notebook paper, an old leather jacket from a thrift store and the boards from an old three ring binder and just play around with it.

I dont really have any process pictures but here's the cover of one I'm working on

I used to, but it takes a long time to make and I have another job that takes up most of my time. Nobody wants to wait six months while I try to find time to finish a project that you already paid for. This is definitely a better hobby than a job for me. The black one with the skyrim dragon and the brown one with the "om" were actually commissions.

I tend to make the book block first and use it to check if the covers are going to fit. Then I make the boards either from thin wood or particle board or paper boards from a junked book or binder. I than I cut the leather out glue it to boards and make the spine. Anything raised (including the bands on the spine) is cut out leather polymer clay or cotton cord. Then I glue a peice of cotton cloth to the spine of the book block and glue the edges to the inside of the covers. These then get covered with the end papers and that's basically it.

Also pro tip, never buy leather from Tandy leather. It's all over priced. Get it from ebay.

I unironically look at a lot of video game and fantasy art to get book ideas. Thanks for the picture.
