Bard and artisan, Mistress Dervila ni Leanon, OL, demonstrates the art of Coptic bookbinding in a blog page, illustrated with many photos, that chronicles the process.

Here are the photos for the article on How to Make Your Own Hand Bound Bardic Book. I have two books at the moment - the 300+ page Brown book, and the 60+ page Blue book. I’m going to put the stories in both books together, but that will be much too big for one book. So my next edition (number 6) will be in two volumes. Yes, I have made five Brown books, each one bigger than the last as my collection increased.
