Book Cover Crochet Instructions

    Select an appropriate format for your cover. Your first step is to choose the correct sizing so your graphics and text turn out exactly as you want them. A portrait-oriented, rectangular size is typical for a book, but you can alternatively use a custom size to really stand out from the crowd.

    Before the early nineteenth century, books were hand-bound, in the case of luxury medieval manuscripts using materials such as gold, silver and jewels. For hundreds of years, book bindings had functioned as a protective device for the expensively printed or hand-made pages, and as a decorative tribute to their cultural authority. In the 1820s great changes began to occur in how a book might be covered, with the gradual introduction of techniques for mechanical book-binding. Cloth, and then paper, became the staple materials used when books became so cheap—thanks to the introduction of steam-powered presses and mechanically produced paper—that to have them hand-bound became disproportionate to the cost of the book itself.
