Are you a book person? I am a bookworm, reading everything I could as a kid, which sometimes got me in to trouble, but always kept me invested in new knowledge. I also fell in love with the book as object very early. The smell, the feel, the thickness of the paper. The tightness of the binding and how the papers spread when they wrinkled from the bath.
When I began bookbinding just after my undergrad, I discovered so much more about the book that I never could have learned without learning how to bind. So today I reminisced a little and have written about 10 things that I learned when I learned bookbinding.
