Julia, the bookbinder

Right now, Julia is sitting out on the patio with her daddy, sewing away on their first book. It's still pretty thin. She is sewing with thread -- 8 1/2 x 11 pages, folded in half, sewn along the seam, and then several bundles of them sewn together.

Julia plans to write her "Rose Books" in these tomes. She writes children's books about Rose the Duck. They are adorable.
This is the way books used to be bound -- sewn together, instead of glued. I bet these little books of hers will last much longer than the paperbacks we have on our house shelves!
