DAS Bookbinding

There was a moment when I'd seen one too many questionable bookbinding video tutorials on YouTube and briefly considered what would be involved in addressing that deficiency.  Fortunately, I found DAS Bookbinding, and it's clear that the niche of good, clear, fundamental instruction on making books is extremely well covered already.

His videos are excellent. If you're interested in starting to make books, you should check them out.
