The Do-It-Yourself Book

You need:

  • one coverflap (preferably of your own, not yet published book)
  • one paperback (of the 350-to-400-page variety)
  • a bit of Scotch tape

And, now all you need to do is:

  • fold coverflap to make it look like a book (an empty book, that is, pages are still missing)
  • take four stripes of Scotch tape and form four rings
  • put those rings on all four corners of the back of the coverflap
  • now press paperback into coverflap

Et voilà: the book is finished. 🙂 (I needed one of those for today’s photo session)
