Rainbow Book Tutorial by Marenne Rainbow Book Tutorial by Marenne
Because so many of you mentioned wanting to make one or asked for a tutorial, here it is!
Feel free to ask me anything about this binding or bookbinding in general.
You can pick your own size and colors or copy these.
I would love to see some results, and if you post it up here I'll ad yours to the previews below!

If you have (or will) add this to your favourites, I probably won't be able to thank you on your page. So let me say it now: Thank you! :D

So I think the official name for this binding should be: "long stitch though a slotted spine with woven cover".
I prefer to just call it "woven long stitch".
Books with this binding by other deviants:
Book by Christabelluv
Rainbow Book by gf-lady
Journal by Ephemeroptera-Gnome
Rainbow Notebook. by splash-light
Deviations inspired by this tutorial:
Puzzle Book starry sunset WIP by Toxicated-kisame52

This book is also for sale in my shop!

I love your work.
I would also love to see what you do, incorporating graphic design and the graphic arts. I have studied graphic design for 3 years and find it very difficult to mix it with hand bookbinding. Graphic design is all about communication (to masses), one book does not do, in the end, one needs to let a machine do the work. What do you think?
Also, I almost didn't click your link because I thought it was spam... next time, please explain a bit further? :)

Let wel op trouwens, sommige boekblokken zijn scheef gesneden of hebben een raar naaipatroon!
