    Paper For Bookbinding

    I am thinking of making a journal/notebook in a midieval cord/board binding with clasps, (Really for a handwritten recipe book that I can add to as my recipe collection grows),and I am looking for a good paper for the signature. Some basic requirements: -Compatible with fountain/dip pens -Acid free(preferably a bit alkaline/archival) -strong enough to withstand bookbinding and use in a book -not too heavy or light (around 110gsm) fairly inexpensive per sheet I want the finished signatures to be around 10 by 13 inches. Any suggestions?
  2. Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share with you a very big book I made last month. The style chosen was German Springback. It had to be A4 size and 4 cm of thickness of the paper. My first thought was: “oh my, this is going to be heavy!”. The paper chosen was Fedrigoni. This was the stack of paper I used, after cutting it to A3 size to fold it. The sheets were folded and sewn. Glue on the spine and some trimming done, it was rounded. Then I applied some backing cloth to reinforce the spine. I finished the spine by applying a couple of bookmarks, some headbands I sew off the book and
  3. Hello All, I wanted to share with the FPN crowd some bookbinding work I did, and maybe garner some advice. Here are some photos: Front Back: Spine: Lay-flat at stitches: Lay-flat at intervening pages: Usage of a guide sheet: And here's where I need some advice: The thing looks like this at points between signatures. In other words the gaps are quite big, and held together by several stitches. I'm actually perfectly fine with having it this way because it lays flat here as it does at all other pages in the book. But, it does look a
  4. Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and was hoping you guys could help me out with a new found hobby. I've recently retaken up writing with fountain pens and now I want to jump into the world of binding my own notebooks, it's fun and I get something really nice at the end. I've done a test run of all of the paper I could get my hands on so far and my favorite is the 85 gsm bioprima paper found in the Fabriano EcoQua notebooks, the problem I am having is I dont' know where to get just the paper. The EcoQua notebooks seem to be everywhere online and in local art stores but I can't for the life
  5. So, partially inspired by the price of a good 8.5x5.5 journaling journal, and partially by TMLee's amazing thread and seeing how his journals went from where they started to what they are now...and since I've got a TON of paper my work gave me for free...I've decided to start a thread of my own cataloging my journal making adventures! Don't expect anything as epic or as helpful as the thread TMLee has going, I don't know how long this will even hold my interest. I have a bad habit of obsessing over new hobbies for short stints and them dropping them when a new one catches my interest. I'm al

    Hello From Catalonia!

    Hi!!! My name is Anna and I live in Salt, Catalonia. I am a bookbinder and I am here because you have a lot of information on paper, and that interests me. I also enjoy your bookbinding/journal posts and I hope to show my work here too . Nice to meet you all!!
  7. Hello from the piedmont region of South Carolina, where this afternoon we had several tornado warnings, but no tornados. I've been a handweaver for 45+ years, and recently started making handbound blank journals as a way of using up some of my stash of handwoven fabrics on the covers. Then I began drawing in the journals, and bought a few fountain pens, and started collecting interesting inks to draw with, and one thing led to another. . . My favorite writing pens are my Lamys, but I just got a Creaper with flexible nib for drawing. I like to use Noodler's Lexington Gray for line drawings, and
