10 Rules for Bookbinders

by Tawn O'Connor

1. If you meet resistance, find out why.

2. It's better to have a good mend than a bad match.

3. If you get angry or stressed, take a break and tidy your work area.

4. Food and drink nourish your body, but keep them away from your workspace.

5. Don't overdo. "A little more" is often too much.

6. Don't panic. When you make a mistake, nobody dies.

7. Charge what you're worth.

8. Find a mentor. Ask questions. Join a mentoring group.

9. Consider the value of your work and don't scrimp on the quality of your materials.

10. Reconnect with the joy.
