Print to Sew Version of Book Restoration Unveiled
What do you get with the print to sew version? You get 19 pdf downloads. 17 of the downloads are the individual signatures consisting of images for 4 double-sided 8.5 by 11″ pages. These you will print double-sided using whatever printer you like. The other two downloads are photos of the front and rear covers. You can use them for the covers if you like or not.
Then you will fold each signature, sew as you like, then bind as you like. You will be able to download the pdfs 5 times (just in case that part goes wrong). This is the same thing as a book “in-sheets” except you have to print it yourself.
I do not have instructions available to bind the book. I expect I may provide this someday, but meanwhile I am assuming you have your own instructions. There are certainly many available online. (If anyone wants to offer their hard-cover copies for sale on my website I will consider such a thing so contact me!)
The Print to Sew version is slightly smaller than the paperback version which is 6 x 9 inches. It is smaller in order to fit onto standard 8.5 by 11 inch paper. That sort of paper is typically short grain and so should work perfectly for your book. The quality of the printing and paper is all up to you!
By purchasing the Print to Sew version of Book Restoration Unveiled you agree to create only 3 copies of the book per purchased download. To print more copies you must purchase the downloads again. By purchasing the Print to Sew version of Book Restoration Unveiled you agree that you will not use it to publish your own version. It has a proper copyright and all rights are reserved except precisely as noted here. This is a really neat thing that I thought of to do for the bookbinders out there and I am counting on you to help me make it work. If you do actually print, sew, and bind a copy I would love to see it! Please post on Facebook or Instagram and tag #saveyourbooks.
