Encasing multiple signatures between covers makes books look so very … booklike. This is how the hardcovers we read all the time are bound. Something cool about managing to do it myself. (Also: Guess it was a good thing not to give up when my first attempt at this fell apart utterly after all. Because this one’s so pretty!)
I want to say that this one looks like a real book, except from a bookbinding perspective, there are so many kinds of real books. Like a traditional western book, maybe?
