Quarter Bound Books

A Quarter Bound Cased-In book made with 50 sheets of copy paper - 5 folios per signature and 10 signatures:

The copy paper (grain long) was cut 6 inches in height and then folded in half to make folios.  The finished book is 6.25 inches high and 4.75 inches wide.  The book was covered with black book cloth and paste paper made with acrylic paints.  The end papers are solid black. 

My friends made the books on the left, in a group bookbinding session, and I made the book on the right. The copy paper can be used for drawing with a Sakura Pigma Micron pen.  I used the first one I made for 100 pages of ink drawings, and the size makes it easy to carry around.
