Wasn’t really sure about what to put as end pages around the normal paper pages so I just grabbed some black construction paper and put it there. I bet there are better options…

Placed it between couple pieces of wood so serve as a book press.

C-claps to complete the home-made book press.

I saw on some tutorial that the perfect binding needs some texture added to the pages in the back so the glue sticks better. I added some grooves so the blue has even better place to stick.image

Some twine and contact cement…

And done

In the end the grooves/twine were not such a good idea, the pages don’t quite open properly. So don’t do that. Live and learn…

To finish the text block I took some random strips of fabric for the book marks.
