Two books in one course plus a freebie!
This course will teach the construction of both, The Scholar's Ledger and Victorian Lady's Handbook book covers. Also included is a new spine construction that helps retain the traditional ridge detail and curved spine without using a book press.
Both books can be easily adapted to many different looks and styles with just a few simple changes. Included FREE with this book cover course is access to the Hollow Back Binding Course to form a complete and comprehensive guide to building the covers and binding in the pages in both styles.
Please see this video on my YouTube channel for all the info before you enroll and feel free to ask questions!

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. Also, check out my YouTube channel (Nik the Booksmith) for a look at past and present work and also course information videos. =)
