In the September/October issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, I share a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a book from scratch so that you can bind single sheets of paper (rather than folded signatures).
The theme of the issue is Books with a Purpose and the sample I created is a compendium of mixed media techniques.
The article describes and illustrates, step-by-step, how to put together the structure of this book.

If you are unable to get a copy of the magazine or prefer video, this is the same technique that is featured on my video The Altered Book from Interweave. It is available as an immediate download or DVD.
