I have had two weeks of classes now, but this is my first finished book! One of the reasons that one book can take four of five classe to make is that sometimes you have to wait a day or so between steps. So you're always working on several books at a time.
This is a pretty traditional structure, and a sturdy one. We are using butcher paper for the textblocks of our first few books, but I actually like the contrast between the fine, 100% cotton cloth and the rough paper. I'm going to look into acid-free papers with a similar color/texture.
