I I've been doing some bookbinding lately, mostly just playing with, and in the research for that I found a great way to bind magazine for prosterity and organisation. It's called Coptic binding.
It's an ancient binding method used in Egypt to bind books. The main
advantage it has over the other methods of bookbinding for perserving magazines
is that with coptic binding you can open your magazines up flat. Which
for hobby magazines is ideal.
The covers are 2 seperate piece, the same size or just a bit bigger then your magazines, this book style leaves the "signatures" folds exposed.
Start by placing them on each other and drilling 6 equally spaced holes
in them about a half inch from the edge with the awl
Contine in that manner adding other magazines in the same way, when you get to the back cover, add it the same way as the first.
Hope you enjoy this project!
