What do you mean by "marks" ?

To understand the technic, I advise you to start with the geometrical ones.
Instructions are HERE.

How do I adapt the pattern to my book ?

Measure your book sheets height, substract 12.5, then divide by 2.
Add the result to all the marks.

Count your book number of sheets, substract 180, then divide by 2.
The result tells you on which sheet you start folding.

    Hi,I was wondering what measurement unit is used in this book folding pattern? I’d love to use it, but the measurements won’t work on my books. Would it be possible to get the measurements in exact centimetres? Thank you

      The unit used is centimeters… with decimals. In order to help you, can you specify me wich trouble you have?

    superbe! vous utilisez un livre de quelle hauteur?


      11 Mar 2016

      Serge ne me l’a pas précisé, mais compte tenu que le dessin fait 12cm de haut, son livre doit faire 19 ou 20 cm.
      Bon pliage !

        le livre fait 20 cm de haut


          24 Mar 2016

          Merci pour cette précision… et pour tous tes partages ! :-)
