I thought people might find this useful.
I came across a post on Painting Speech which said “Claire Van
Vliet and Elizabeth Steiner have made their 2002 book Woven and
Interlocking Book Structures freely available in a variety of formats
(PDF, EPUB, Kindle, etc.) at the Internet Archive. Published in 2002 and no
longer in print, this book is a self-teaching manual with directions for making
basic models of 16 book structures designed for Janus, Steiner, and Gefn Press
publications. You can find it here at
archive.org; download options are listed as links on the right.
If you follow Claire’s recommendation to print the PDF 2-sided and bind it
in a 3-ring binder as a bench top manual, it will take 76 sheets of letter-size
I’ve been trying to get a library or a reasonably priced second hand
copy for ages with no success. So I’d like to say thank you to Claire
Elizabeth for their generosity in sharing.
