About the Author
Stacie Dolin is a bookbinder and consummate crafter located in Arlington, MA. After working in the silkscreen industry for a number of years, she moved to Boston to study bookbinding at the North Bennet Street School. She now teaches numerous bookbinding workshops and does independent binding and book repair. When not playing with books, Stacie knits, spins, and quilts, and looks for ways to integrate her fiber activities into her bookbinding.
Amy Lapidow is a hand bookbinder, trained through The North Bennet Street School and several other institutions including Rare Book School and CBBAG. She teaches through the NBSS workshop program, where she has developed classes on a number of bookbinding concepts. Her personal interest is taking historic bookbinding structures and updating them by using alternate materials and for contemporary uses. Her work has been seen in 500 Handmade Books and as part of the exhibit One Book Many Interpretations at The Chicago Public Library, where she combined a classic binding style with QR codes. She lives in Somerville, MA.

- Will your items be displayed both horizontally and vertically? If so, you will need a larger page to accommodate this. If you’re planning to use a landscape format, consider the weight of the paper and how it will be supported on the fore edge. An item that is too heavy for the supporting paper will cause the supporting paper to rip, sag, and not display or shelve correctly. Choose a support that is sturdier—as thick or heavy, or thicker or heavier—than the item.

So far I've tried three projects, each of which has numerous mistakes ranging from photos not corresponding to directions to vague and misleading text to incorrect dimensions resulting in wasted materials and time. Thankfully I am not a beginning bookmaker or I would not have been able to complete them. I think the structures are interesting and worthy of learning if you can muddle through the directions.
