Bindery for the N3wb

This was originally created as part of a workshop on binding I taught at New Zineland 2016 in Boston.


Note that you can click through the links on the comic. I did that for you.

Binder for the N3wb was created using royalty-free old images. The text was laid out in Adobe InDesign. And I went nuts on the fonts because this seemed like a good opportunity:

  • Title: Castellar

  • Main text: Adobe Garamond Pro (my fave)

  • Miscellaneous on "Why": Cheap Fire, Elementary Gothic Bookhand, Guild of Professional Actors

  • Sewn pamphlet: Dash Dot

  • Slit-8: Slice n Dice

  • Hidden hardware: Hammerhead

  • Japanese stab binding: Yozakura

  • Perfect bound: Square Font

  • Perfect Bound Signatures: Squares Bold

  • Accordian: Dotty Fold

  • "To Research" heading": Boyle San
