Irfan has now taken up bookbinding as a hobby so I thought I would commission from him a small gamemaster’s notebook for me. I printed out the cover design at the print shop on blue paper and gave it to him. The cover was designed quickly using Inkscape and saved as a pdf.
Irfan stacked and folded some blank A4-sized papers for the interior pages.
He carefully measured where the staples were supposed to go on the spines.
Then he stapled the spine of the folded papers together carefully onto an eraser and bent the staple legs inward manually.
Here is the notebook almost done.
All that is needed to be done is to slice the extra piece of paper away for a flat edge.
The notebook is now ready for me to write in to continue our Time is the Hunter Star Wars RPG campaign that I am gamemastering. Perhaps I will follow up this blog entry with another when I have filled up the notebook with notes, stats and sketches in the future.
