In the spirit of handmade wares and near-forgotten craft, this bookbinding kit not only offers a journal to fill with words and scribblings, but also teaches the art of hand-bound bookbinding.

The style of this book was influenced by its designer's love of Anselm Kiefer and his book Transition from Cool to Warm. It includes beautiful uncovered books that, in addition to housing extraordinary paintings, also showwith dirt and bendy cornersall of the love and travels his books endured.

Understanding the sewing process of bookbinding is the first step in making a sound book.

Kit includes: 
- 1 length of thread
- 1 bookbinder’s needle
- 2 linen tapes
- 1 instruction booklet
- 1 sheet of illustrated steps
- Hand-torn, line-free Strathmore drawing paper
- 60 pages (30 sheets)

Glue is not included. Wheat paste is easily created by combining one part flour to four parts of hot water. Bleached flour works best.
