Collaboration with The Kruch

7 Aug 2012

Los Cuentos de Ben, 1st edition

One day recently our friend and illustrator The Kruch came by to pay us a visit. We helped him put together a test print of one of a series of comic stories that he’d created. We also used one of his illustrations to put together a couple of notebooks and we think they turned out quite fine. We are looking forward to more collaborations with him!

The covers and the comic are printed on cardstock and plain A4 office paper was used for the pages of the notebooks. We sewed them with three hole pamphlet stitch and red linen thread.

Pamphlet stitch

13 Jul 2011

En el segon i tercer llibre vam practicar la costura de pamflet

The second and third books we´ve made utilise the pamphlet stitch, using only three holes.  It´s very easy and the best part is that no glue is necessary.  It´s quite possible with only a little imagination to make several and various alterations to this design.

The white book on the left is a simple chap book and the smaller, on the right, is made using recycled tea bags and packaging, based on the design of  Trial & Error.  We´ve created a how-to video of the process!
