So...to help pass the time and keep the brain from shrivelling, I am learning bookbinding. Why bookbinding, I hear you say. Well, it's light, I like books and have often thought about giving it a go, particularly the old medieval, traditional techniques. Also, in the future, we'll still need to make a bit of money. Pensions are all very well, but the money is, shall we say charitably, limited. So something that's light, does not take too much space and requiring few tools would be a good idea, in my mind.
Leather journals, diaries, sketchbook, all with leather covers might fit the bill, as in being saleable.
So I have a few tools and supplies on order. The plan is to learn the basics first. Makes sense, I think...
|That's the sort of things I have in mind for now|
I'll post some pictures as I make a start on this project.
