    This was a fun project! I started a book that day. Debbie, the librarian who presents Informal Handmade Books, suggests first strengthening the pages by gluing 4-5 pages together first. I used regular white glue and put waxed paper underneath and on top and pressed the book, opened it and put a heavy book over top. I cut out the preceding two pages and decorated. Hmmm. Maybe I’ll post a photo!
