First time doing a Japanese bound book (first time? pathetic) and it came out a whole lot better than I had anticipated!
I used basic lined paper to test on, but the greyboard cover I plan on using for my final FMP book. I will be using embroidery thread instead too, but I feel like I SHOULD use this, as it's more 'natural' and 'earthy' feel, flowing with the content of my FMP... even if it the work is New Zealand, not Japanese.
P.S - yes, the fold's bad and I DON'T GIVE A FUCK... it's only a test. :)
