single page binding

I clamped my pages between two pieces of wood and a clamp, then used a file to create slits down the spine area of my book. after filled it with glue and placed two pieces of (book binding) thread inthe slits, after pasted it with PVA glue again. left it int he clamps to dry to then reveal the book had been bound. After i just trimmed down the excess thread, and glued some scrim over the spine to secure it.

Overlapping with Children's books

I found these in a book about children's picture books but I think that they can also apply to artist books as there seems to be quite an art to them!
This first one is like a little stage that you set up in layers and then the viewer has a little hole to look through at the scene...
This second one is a block book where you can change the order the images are opened at (I think!?)...
This third one I like, you swivel the circle around and it reveals another image underneath.  It could be something that you build up further and have a whole book of images underneath one another.
