Limited Process: Bookblocks
Hello to all of those waiting on your limited version: we've got good news, your wait is almost over. Construction has begun, additional supplies such as bookcloth, headbands and the die for the cover are officially en route.
I thought it might be interesting to take you through some of the process on these, as they are all being bound and finished by hand. These will be small updates, but you'll get an idea of how the final book is made.
First off, we've got the bookblocks, which comprise all of the interior content of the book. These arrived from the printer bound, but uncut.
The bookblocks are clamped into the page plough, trimmed, and ready for the next step, the headbands, coming soon!
