Non-adhesive Binding, Volume 1

A very comprehensive book with super detailed instructions for making many different kinds of books from simple to complex. I taught myself a lot of the structures I know from it. And if that's not enough, there are four other books in this five volume series, each with more book structures!

Blood, Bones & Butter gives great insight into the not-so-linear or clear-cut path, full of seemingly various and random life experiences, that sometimes leads the way to great chefdom.

The Omnivore's Dilemma

These five books are all quick reads but would give a layman a weekend reading assignment that would truly enlighten them about our food choices.  Many of these authors have been featured subjects in full length feature films on the subject of food, but these works dive into the main benefits of supporting and encouraging local, sustainable food in communities nationwide. Not only will the reader understand more full the health benefit of the food, but also the benefits that organic agriculture brings to the animals and the earth.
