Chapbooks Are Almost Done!

My first two poetry chapbooks are done! I'm using a 4-hole Japanese binding technique. Took a second to get used to it, but I'm getting in the groove now.  

I meant to document the rest of the steps leading up to this point, but I just didn't feel like it. This process has been pretty time consuming, and it felt like an extra step I didn't want to take.  

 Here I used purple thread for one and black thread for the other. I also have and orangish color thread that I'll use.   (:

If you're interested in learning the bookbinding technique I used, here's the super helpful YouTube video that taught me how to do it. The internet can be wonderful sometimes. (:
