Hollow Back Book Binding
My favorite type of signature binding for covers with curved spines!
Want your journals and books to lay flatter for easier writing? For any type of book cover, but my favorite for curved spines, this Hollow Back Binding© tutorial is perfect for binding papers to handmade book covers or even old covers from gutted books. Great for flat spines, too!
This tutorial teaches how to sew your signatures into a hidden stitch binding assembly and how to attach that binding to a book cover. It does not teach how to make a book cover or gut an old book.
So grab a book cover of your choice and a cuppa and join me in filling my already-made book cover with pages!
*So, first off...I want you to make stuff from the skills I teach and sell that stuff, if you want to!

Hello, it's great to meet you! I'm Nik and I live in Colorado, USA. For the past few years, I've produced videos of my work on YouTube. You may know me from there! All my life, I have been an artist, but I really found my calling with bookmaking. After developing tried and true methods of creating uniquely styled books, I have jumped into the world of online teaching. From this platform, I can interact with thousands of students worldwide, spreading good cheer and Booksmithing techniques! Feel free to contact me and ask questions, if you like.
