Book Construction: Wrapping a Printed Cover


Book Construction Series
Book artist and binder, Amanda Nelsen is back with another demonstration. This time she takes us through the process of creating a printed book cover – working with a printed out design and “wrapping” it around the front and back book board. This is a great technique if you want to create your own custom designed book cover. All video tutorials can be found on the video tutorials page.
