As a way to battle my depression, I've taken up an old/new hobby - bookbinding. I even made some specialized tools for it, such as my own bookpress:

I even made some notebooks, one paperback and another hardcover, and I made the covers myself:

I hope I'll be able to sell some of the ones I make - these two already have their owners-to-be!

That is a ridiculously cool hobby! :)

Does the inside start as literally just a stack of loose-leaf pages? (I'm looking at the second picture and wondering if the lines in the interior part are smaller sub-sets of pages that are combined into the final total, or if they just all start together right away.)

And that floral pattern on the second one is gorgeous. :)
