Suitable for customers who have previously used Janie’s book kits, this binding technique is different to previous kits in Janie’s range. The Book kit gives you Step by step instructions to guide you through the full construction and stitching, to produce a beautifully crafted hard backed book with a Coptic stitched spine. Janie has used an exposed spine technique to replicate some of the antiquarian books she has researched.

The cover papers were designed by Janie using images from Medieval Manuscripts and drawings. With the additional printed elements, you can use your own inspiration to decorate your project. Create a professional looking book perfect for gifting to a loved one or to yourself!
