When I asked Michael Greer of Leatherbound Book Works if he only did books in atoms (as opposed to books made of bits, he said that he does, in fact, have a book he’s working on in binary form. However, the leatherbound Book of Genesis (the first four chapters at the moment) is in fact printed, but it’s expressed entirely in binary. In this video, Michael uses this binary book to explain some of the basics of bookbinding, from signatures through stamped leather cover.

I’m a tinkerer and finally reached the point where I fix more things than I break. When I’m not tinkering, I’m probably editing a book for Maker Media.



  1. I love the idea iof the book binding, but when we are teaching kids to save resources how can you justify a book that you can’t read?

  2. I didn’t mean to offend real text would elevate this from being an interesting novelty/decoration to something that you would refer to time and time again in years to come.
