Right: The beautifully illustrated, how-to-fold-this "instant book" comes from page 15 of Esther K. Smith's "How To Make Books." I learned most of what I know about making books from that one. It's a gem.


Instant Books seem like just the right thing for me to make right now. They're bite-sized to make and the perfect size for snacking.


The titles of the zines shown below are links to pdfs if you want to print paper copies.  Print one! Print lots! Share with your friends and families! Share with people you haven't even met yet!


They each fit on a single sheet of 8.5" x 11" paper.
