How to make this book

- print the PDF "Booklet" on both sides, first page on card stock, perhaps with the option to print "fit/adjust to printer margins".
- mark the folds of each sheet before folding with a thin, rounded object (butter knife, plectrum, used ballpoint pen or other).
- Sew the whole thing together.
- Cut off the unnecessary margins with a cuter (placed outside the notebook) and a ruler. Don’t press too hard, prefer to make several passes.
- you can protect the cover with matt or glossy spray varnish (e.g. 3 thin layers of oil/acrylic varnish).

In the picture above the booklet has been printed in A3 format on Canson paper and sewn with coloured canvas thread.
Dimensions after cutting: 20 × 25 cm.
When printing on A4 you will get a book of about 15 × 18 cm.
