Best Coptic Stitch book binding video tutorial. Jim Escalante talks through this process. (There are two short videos) I use his technique to make my hand-bound books, then use the "covers" as my end-sheets when hard-binding. Other notes: Less tangling of thread if it is first waxed. To pre-measure thread, wrap it around the height of the book; one length for each part of the book (4 signatures plus 2 end pieces = 3 circumferences) plus one extra 'go round' for a nice tail to work…

Location of Kelly Paper, the place to buy parent sheets of Cougar paper for around 50¢ a sheet. (More for the cover weight.) 3 sheets makes a nice little book.

My own studies of color have been almost like music theory, and I developed my own notation system for a color wheel based upon Albert Munsell's 10-section color wheel. The Bourges system doubles that number and explores color from a dozen different angles. Combining historic and contemporary, Color Bytes includes hexadecimal and RGB color notation along with views from many disciplines. Find it. Fall into its pages.
