a small edition

Stephanie Gibbs

Single-section pamphlets serve a variety of utilitarian needs: a fast method for creating a book, that can be dressed up in a proper cover.

Here's a small edition that includes:

layout in InDesign
commercially printed
(on paper cut so the grain direction is correct!)

trimmed to size, pressed

sewn as a single-section pamphlet

covers made of museum board
(small books don't require heavy-duty covers!)

covered in Japanese bookcloth

cloth hinge

front pastedown of text-weight paper

back pastedown is the back page of the pamphlet

cover label is gold-stamped ledger paper

Single section sewn pamphlet, cloth hinge, back page pastedown, front flyleaf loose.

sections, collated and pressed

cover fabric, boards, section, and between boards measurement

the beauty of sharp corners

Inner cloth hinge. The front pastedown is a single blank page, unconnected to the pamphlet. The last page of the pamphlet is the back pastedown.
