  • Blackbird Letterpress 1607 South Main Street Baton Rouge, LA, 70802 United States (map)

In this class you'll learn step-by-step how to bind your own hardcover book - perfect for use as a journal or sketchbook. You'll learn how to gather and sew pages, measure and build a hard-spine case, and customize and decorate with a cover inset (bring your own photo or print!), place-keeping ribbon, and headband. You may bring your own decorative paper to personalize your creation, or choose from the assortment we'll provide. All materials are included, and all skill levels are welcome.

This class is $95 which includes all materials and is lead by Rebecca, a printer and designer at Blackbird.
