A good starter book for working with kids (and adults) for you to glean
from and pass on is Shereen La Plantz' Cover to Cover. She shows a wide
variety of book forms, with directions on how to make them, but none of
the techniques in the book is terribly difficult, nor do the projects
require much in the way of "bookbinding" equipment. There are hundreds
of books out there on the topic of bookbinding, many of them GOOD, do
you know anything yet? I mean, do you know what kind of books you want
to make? { A bonus of using Cover to Cover is that you get to see work
from some members of this list.)
