Binding your own book

Postby Arcane_Scroll » Thu Dec 15, 2011 3:54 am

I'm reading a lot about people trying to get it printed and bound, but am I the only one planning on printing and binding my own copy? To me it seems like the finished product would mean more if I hand sewed the binding and put in the labor in creating it.

Bookbinding Tutorials - This is how I'm planning on making mine. Of all the tutorials I've seen, he makes it clear and easy to follow.

If anyone else has any suggestions, please post them here. I'm sure we are all new to this and any resources are good resources.

Hmm this could be worth a look at to be honest. Thanks for the idea Arcane, will have to have a look at this.

But I've been tempted to get a E-reader, especially since some one (Can't remember their name) has been turning lots of fan fics into E-reader files. I hear someone's doing FO:E as well...

But this look like the best thing I've seen so far.

That would be MaximillianVeers, he converts a ton of fanfics. I recommend them to everyone I know with an eReader. If you get an eReader, I recommend the Kindle Fire, it's a great eReader and a decent Android tablet, and it's not a bad price.

I'd rather have a commercially produced small-run edition. That would make it seem more real to me.

I'm not sure that will happen. As Kkat herself has said she wants us to avoid the gray area of copywrite as much as possible. And if we do it that way it will need to be sold and again Kkat said she doesn't want it sold. So looks like this is going to be one of the only ways of doing it.

Okay, looks like I was wrong. Kkats given the green light for some kind of hardback printing..

*SQUEE* Sister got me a Android tablet for xmas (opened it early as I won't be seeing her again before xmas) And first thing I do is download a PDF reader and stick on FO:E. Now I'm happy ...

hi hi

I'm definitely going to wait until the revised final version comes out before I start printing it out, but I think I'm going to go for it. I'll probably end up binding it myself. Thanks for the tutorial videos. :) I know someone who did book binding for a job for a while, so I'm going to try asking her for some tips.

Awesome, please pass on any tips you learn and I'll do the same.

I'm starting to gather artwork and typset now, but i'm not going to print anything until she revises, then I'll move over the changes.
