Tutorial: Elbum - NEW


Learn how to make the elbum, a fun and clever album structure which holds its pages by gripping them into a series of articulated narrow pockets. A treasure of paper engineering, this project is also a great introduction to concertina folding by hand.

After an introduction, an overview, a list of materials and equipment, the tutorial describes every single step of the construction, with few words and many large full-colour images. The 52 page tutorial is inkjet printed, in three languages (French, English and Spanish), hand bound by us at Elbel Libro in Amsterdam.

'The Elbum tutorial looks amazing. My first impression is the incredible details, the many steps you describe and illustrate. I enjoy following it in my mind and am planning to actually make an Elbum.' - Hedi Kyle -

'Cher Benjamin, ton livre sur l'elbum est vraiment très bien fait, textes et photos sont excellents.' - Michel Debar -

'Ben, your latest book was so tempting that I had to start. I have folded the concertina this morning and am so impressed by the precise instructions... And the photographs about how to hold your fingers! It is second best to having a teacher in person. And in some ways even better because you can always go back to the book.’s.'
