How does a Book Cradle Work?

Simply place your folded signature in the cradle, butt all the pages up to one end so they're all aligned and pierce all the holes in the signature at the same time. I supply templates for piercing the holes with all my bookbinding classes to help make your books a success!

At the end of the class you'll have a handy tool that folds flat to travel and for storage!

Once you have a book cradle, you'll wonder how you ever managed without one! Now you can get the hole piercing step over more quickly and accurately and on to the fun stuff!

You have lifetime access to this course in case you lose your cradle!
