How a book is born!

This is the first post in a series to come showing how I construct a book. Today's post shows the first steps of starting with a larger sheet of paper and either folding or cutting it down to the correct size. The two tools shown are my bone folder and my paper knife, very important items to every book binder. The bone folder gets used on almost every step of the process, I have 3 different folders but thats another post.
The pages shown here were used to create the blue kimono book below.
