We'll be covering a wide range of skills and book structures, for which there is a basic set of tools we recommend. The following list of tools will enable you to create a wide range of structures. In fact, you can create (nearly) any book structure there is with just this simple set of tools.

Fancy stuff like sewing frames and presses can be nice to use, but are not required. We make a large part of our living making books, and only sometimes use a sewing frame (for convenience rather than necessity), and never use presses, opting for clamps or weights instead when the need for one arises.
