I know that there are other Instructables on the art of book binding but this project is meant to be a simple quick project that will give a very acceptable finish, and a book that looks like it has been professionally made, yet without the need for any special equipment. All you will need is: Some paper Minimum really is about 32 A4 or US Letter sized sheets, to make a half A4 half US Letter sized book , although smaller books can be made as can ones with more pages. You can use tracing paper, thick or thin paper and of course colored or even preprinted or written on paper. Some glue You will need PVA Elmer's White glue or a rubber fabric adhesive in the UK that is called Copydex, perhaps someone could tell me what it's called in the US , a glue gun if you have it, would help with one of the stages, but is not mandatory.
