Overview A guide to making a book from scratch covers the different ways to make illustrations, what to write about, and how to assemble it in various formats.
Artist Sophie Benini Pietromarchi invites children on a unique and poetic journey into the world of bookmaking.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Book Book: A Journey into Bookmaking?
Not enough instruction-not what I thought it would be Jul 2, 2008
This book is cute on the cover and the book has rounded edges like a small journal..However, it lacks content. It would be good for grade schoolers that would like to explore writing a book. As far as making books, it has a very small section in back with vague instruction on actually making books. I wouldn't purchase this again and actually would send it back if I could.
I wanted a book that explained the actual binding methods or fun book binding projects for children/young adults..this isn't it.
if you are really going to make books it is so great. Feb 11, 2008
I say that because I think it is more artsy than I wanted and I think it is not useful for me.
