Woven and Interlocking Book Structures
In an amazing act of generosity towards the book arts community, Claire Van Vliet and Elizabeth Steiner have made their book Woven and Interlocking Book Structures available for free at the Internet Archive.
The book was published in 2002 and is sadly out of print. I am so thankful I have a copy (it’s seriously awesome). It contains 16 different book structures, none of which require adhesive or sewing to construct. As the title suggests, these books are held together by the (not-so-simple) weaving together of paper.
So for those of you who are currently without a copy, this download’s for you! Simply go here and choose your desired download from the menu on the right-hand side of the page.
No pressure intended, but you should totally print out the pages and bind them yourself. Report back when you’re done.
Note: Many thanks to Claire for being a fabulous representative of both book arts and Vermont.
