After I began freelancing as an expert photographer, I knew I needed to put collectively a printed portfolio. Sadly, I discovered it very laborious to search out helpful sources on the Web on methods to really do that. As I had some expertise in bookbinding I managed to bind my first e-book on my own, however after three books I spotted that on this stage of my profession, I wanted to have one thing slightly extra versatile.
I used to be conscious of books that labored with e-book screws, however I all the time thought they don’t open that effectively and I disliked the look of the screws going via the duvet. After some analysis, I discovered some books that hid the screws behind the duvet, and I spotted that this will even assist the entire opening mechanism. As I didn’t need a standardized e-book, I made a decision to create one myself.
Within the curiosity of sharing, I filmed the creation of my newest e-book and put collectively a tutorial.
To observe this tutorial, you’ll want:
- Bookbinding linen
- E-book screws
- Folding bone
- Gap puncher
- chopping machine (or a field cutter)
The e-book consists of a canopy and a physique, which perform in line with the identical precept: gluing three cardboard parts to some bookbinding linen to create a hinge. After finishing the 2 components, they will merely be glued collectively, and the pages could be printed and added to the e-book. For a full, step-by-step breakdown, try the video up high and observe alongside.
The method is fairly straightforward, and I’m sure that if you happen to’re slightly helpful, you’ll be able to create your individual portfolio as effectively!
