Jointed Cover
Book Kit


Brick red cover is shown
 

There's nothing like a new book kit to kick start your binding mojo! Inspired by a student and by my tablet cover, I designed our new Jointed Cover Blank Journal Kit. The cover is split into 4 parts so that it opens in sections. The kit comes in 6 great book cloth colors and has lots of pages that open flat for all your thoughts and drawings. This kit will definitely help you learn about joints. It's a 6-needle Coptic (chain stitch) and is a lot of fun to make.

A set of our Measuring Rules will make the construction of this kit a breeze.
