Hard Cover

In hardcover book binding method several signatures are sewed together and a thick cover is attached with the help of an adhesive. You can see the threads when you open the book. In some books wire and cables are also used for sewing. You can also make a hardcover book at home. By having the knowledge of sewing and attaching the cover, anybody can make a hardcover book. Let us see how you can create it in 8 steps.

  • 1) First of all keep all the equipment and materials ready. You will need signatures, an awl, big needle, strong thread, glue, thick cardboard cover and paper clamps.
  • 2) Take the signatures and make four holes on the spine at equal distances.
  • 3) For sewing take the needle and thread. Take the first signature and run the needle into the first hole, out of the second hole, into the third and out of the fourth hole.
  • 4) Take the second signature and take the needle through fourth hole of second signature and out of the third hole. Now run it into the third hole of first signature and out of the second hole. Again take the needle into the second hole of second signature and out of the first hole. In this way you have two signatures attached. Continue in the same way for the remaining signatures.
  • 5) After having all the signatures ready, clamp tightly near the spine. Apply glue all over the spine and let it dry for sometime.
  • 6) For creating the cover take the hard cardboard and cut three pieces. Two of them for top and bottom and one for the spine. Take the size according to the attached signatures.
  • 7) Keep the three pieces of cover on a large plastic or paper. If you have a hardcover book at home, just have a look at how the cover is attached. You will see a paper covering the hard cardboard. To make it that way apply glue and attach the cover pieces on the outer paper. This is the cover.
  • 8) Now apply glue on the top and bottom paper of attached signatures. Also apply the glue on the cover. Place the cover carefully on the signatures. Clamp this tightly and keep it under a heavy object for some time.

There you have it a hardcover book in just eight steps. They are not very simple but can be done easily. After finishing the book you will just want to go for more. This is addictive and you should be careful.

What’s the difference between the hard cover book of twilight and the regular ones?

Obviously the cover is different.
I meant content wise

Well with the hard cover, you can smack yourself in the face for reading such a crappy novel and not forget as fast with a paperback.
