Item description for The Book Book: A Journey into Bookmaking by Sophie Benini Pietromarchi, Meagan Spooner, Dan O'Brien, David Wishart, Lyor Cohen, Marta Rondon & David Mungello...

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.

Publishers Description

Artist Sophie Benini Pietromarchi invites children on a unique and poetic journey into the world of bookmaking. Exploring colors, textures, shapes, and feelings, she demonstrates how to turn these intangible elements into pictorial narratives, using such unlikely fodder as pencil shavings, onions, dust, and leaves.

This visual feast of a book evolved from Pietromarchi’s bookmaking workshops with children. Playfully narrated, and packed with captivating and inventive illustrations, The Book Book is a tribute to the rich, imaginative world in all of us.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!

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.
