Aesthetic Book Binding Techniques
Have you ever seen windows cut in the pages or dust jack of a book? This practice is known as die cutting, and its especially popular in books where the visual aesthetic is a high priority. This includes books of photography, art, and childrens books.
Looking to make your mark on a book? Foil stamping is what you need. Foil stamping is the process of embossing a stamp on a book cover or page with a foil stamp applied with heat. The stamp is slightly elevated from the surface to give it a professional look, and it’s shine is sure to catch a wandering eye.
Dust jackets are a standard cover for hardback books, but there are plenty of opportunities to be creative with one. Consider a reinforced French fold dust jacket that protects the edges of the book from fraying.
Don’t forget about protecting your book. To protect a special edition, consider a custom book case designed to your specifications.
For those small touches, custom handwork is a great way to finish off your project. Hand-packing and ribbon installation complete the package you worked so long to make.
