Folded book tuto (writing)


Book foldingbook folding
Here it is : the tuto to make yourself a folded book.

Whatever you want to write or make a shape.




This tuto is made with Photoshop (you can find a free trial version on the web).

You can make folded book without Photoshop but it’s longer (go HERE).


tuto-folded-book01
Open a new file, pixel scale.

Width is the number of sheets.
WARNING : I said “sheets” and not pages !!

For the height : height of your sheets in cm (be careful, the cover can be higher) multiplied x12.
This increase is for the final distorsion (folded sheets take up more space).


tuto-folded-book02tuto-folded-book03
Choose the custom shape tool or the text tool.

If it is a word, choose your font and create a layer for each letter.

WARNING : if it’s a word don’t leave space between each letter (each column must have a black area).


tuto-folded-book04tuto-folded-book05
In the “view” menu, check “rulers” and “extras“.

Use the “pencil tool“, “square brushes“, size 1 pixel.


tuto-folded-book06tuto-folded-book07
Rasterize layer.
Zoom until the ruler shows each pixel.

We’re going to modify areas where the text (or the shape) has two parts on the same column.

For the “L“, the grey areas won’t be changed (vertical lines are not broken).


tuto-folded-book08
Keep in mind that each column is a sheet of your book.

With the “pencil tool” (square brushe, size 1 px, white color) erase one column out of two in the upper area.
Then erase one column out of two in the lower area shifting the deletion from the upper area.

At the folding time, you will have :
– first sheet for the upper part,
– second sheet for the lower part,
– third sheet for the upper part…. and so on, until complete columns.


tuto-folded-book09tuto-folded-book10
Do the same for letters “o” and “v“.

The “e” is special, because you don’t have 2 areas on the same column but 3 !!


tuto-folded-book11
First part ⇒ nothing to change (except if there is a letter before).

Second part ⇒ Erase two columns out of three, shifting the deletion :
– first sheet for the upper part,
– second sheet for the middle part,
– third sheet for the lower part… and so on.

Third part ⇒ erase one column out of two

Fourth part ⇒ nothing to erase (this part is thin… I admit, I am fussy).


tuto-folded-book12
Let’s have a look to the full pattern.

Now, we have to calculate all the folds….


tuto-folded-book13
Keep your Photoshop document opened, grab your book, your ruler, a pencil… and a calculator !

On this pattern the 30 first sheets are not folded.

Zoom until the ruler show each pixel.
Place guides just before and after the first sheet (1st black column).

The vertical ruler displays 76 px and 81 px…. we have to divide them all by 12 !!
So, folds are at 6.35 cm and 6.75 cm (starting from the top of the sheet).


tuto-folded-book14
For the following sheet, move vertical guides.

The vertical ruler displays 135 px and 140 px : folds are at 11.25 cm and 11.65 cm.

For a nice rendering, I recommend to round up two numbers after the point (2 decimals).



For those who don’t want to use a software, you can make your pattern onto a squared paper or a graph paper.
You will have to run all these steps.

pdf-icon
If you don’t want (or could not),

⊕ The pattern is available on my online store! ⊕

All the calculations are done, but notice :
– the design is 6 cm height,
– “Love” is made with 236 sheets.

Michelle (Love)Michelle (Love2)
Pattern made for Michelle.

This is what she has folded.

How can I make my own design ?

    Bonjour, j’ai une question :

    Vous dites de suivre la technique du géométrique 2.
    Dans ce tuto, vous démarrez à 10cm de la marge de droite.
    Faut-il toujours partir de cette distance pour tous les dessins ? Comment l’adapter le cas échéant aux dimensions du livre que nous avons ?

    Merci beaucoup

      Cette marge est le “point de fuite” qui donne l’effet 3D. Plus la marge est grande plus le motif aura de profondeur.
      Généralement je fais une marge au 2/3 de la largeur des feuilles mais ce n’est pas une obligation.

      Tout dépend ce que tu appelles “dessin”. Si tu regardes les patrons gratuits (clique sur “livre plié” dans les mots-clés) tu trouveras notamment une silhouette de chat ou de bateau (et une vingtaine d’autres) qui sont fait selon cette technique dite pliage classique. Si tu demandes pour le découp’pliage (motif “gravé”) c’est une toute autre technique. Lis cet article et tu comprendras que pour celle-là je garde ma technique ;-)

      Il faudrait compenser le poids du haut en ajoutant du poids sur le bas du livre : en collant un aimant ou des rondelles métalliques sur le bas des 2ème et 3ème de couverture (intérieurs de la couverture) ça pourrait suffire… Si votre livre est plié de la première à la dernière feuille il faudra recouvrir d’une jolie feuille pour les cacher.

    Bonjour,
    Bravo pour votre tuto (que j’ai trouvé grâce au site de Aline, où vous êtes mentionée)
    J’ai tout compris et j’en ai déjà réussi 2.
    J’aimerais maintenant faire un “Mr & Mrs” mais avec les 3 mots en décalé, et j’aimerai savoir comment faire lorsque la colonne est découpée en plus de 3 sections.
    S’il y a 4 sections, doit on faire la haute sur la 1ère page, la suivante sur la 2ème, la suivante sur la 3ème et la basse sur la 4ème? Ce qui revient donc au même que pour une colonne en 2 sections…
    Et s’il y a 5 sections?!!
    Je suis perdue, ça m’a l’air bien compliqué tout d’un coup!
    Peut-être pourrez-vous m’éclairer, si toutefois mon message est compréhensible!
    Merci, bon week-end à vous.

      Si tu as réussi à réaliser 2 livres, c’est que tu as compris la technique ;-)
      En effet chaque section représente une feuille distincte (4 sections = 4 feuilles différentes). En théorie tu peux réaliser un modèle avec autant de sections que tu le souhaites, mais en pratique au delà de 4 sections la silhouette du motif n’apparait plus (j’essaie de me limiter à 3 sections).
      Je pense que ton soucis est pour le “&”, il te faut choisir soigneusement ta police de caractère : il peut être soit très “tordu” soit relativement simple.
      Si vraiment tu veux beaucoup de détails il faut passer à la technique du découp’pliage…

      Whatever you use capital or lower case letters, you can’t leave space between them! (cf “warning” in the 4th paragraph). Then you have two solutions:
      – use the cut and fold technic,
      – cheat by using italic (take a look HERE and HERE).

      Le “e” est un exemple de lettre qui a 3 zones sur une même colonne.
      Comme c’est une lettre à boucle, je pense qu’il n’existe pas de police où il y ait moins de zone (même en majuscule il lui faut 3 barres verticales ;-) ).

      Pour le tuto, et pour que ce soit plus visible, j’ai grisé les zones qui n’ont aucune modification, mais je te déconseille de le faire. Ou alors sur un autre calque avec l’outil “rectangle de sélection” (2ème élément du menu vertical).
      C’est plus simple d’utiliser les lignes d’aide !

      Colorier toute une page risque d’être délicat. J’imagine qu’utiliser de l’aquarelle (peu diluée !) pourrait être une solution mais en faisant un essai avant.
      Regarde les sites d'”altered book”, les pages sont souvent coloriées mais on voit encore le texte, tu trouveras peut-être la technique adéquate.

      Je parle toujours en feuilles, puisqu’on ne peut pas plier une page (2 pages = 1 feuille). A la toute première étape (3ème photo) j’explique que la largeur du document est le nombre de feuilles (350 feuilles = 350 pixels).

      Si tu as déjà un livre, tu ouvres un document Photoshop correspondant à ses dimensions.
      Sinon, tu crées un document Photoshop trèèèèès large, tu places tes lettres, tu regardes quelle est la dimension en largeur (nombre de feuille) et… tu pars à la chasse au livre adéquat.
      La hauteur des livres est généralement de 20 cm donc 240 px de haut.

      Il ne faut surtout pas mettre le livre sous un poids, la tranche de la couverture se déchirerait.
      Je te conseille de mettre deux élastiques autour de ton livre (un en haut, un en bas) pendant 24 à 48 heures. La tension “écrasera” les plis en douceur et ton livre aura une ouverture adaptée.

    J’essaie de suivre votre tuto, mais difficile de suivre pour ma part. Vous avez des options sur votre Photoshop que je ne retrouve pas sur le mien (par exemple pas d’outil crayon peut être est-il caché ? difficile aussi le zoom). Un tuto plus détaillé serait apprécié par beaucoup des lecteurs qui arrivent sur votre site très bien réalisé. C’est frustrant de ne pas parvenir à créer ses propres patrons.

      Par contre, Photoshop sans l’outil crayon ni le zoom ce n’est pas possible ! Peux-tu me dire quelle version tu as et éventuellement m’envoyer une impression écran que je vois quels menus s’affichent chez toi ?

      Il faut en effet une feuille pour chaque zone. J’essaie d’éviter les motifs qui ont plus de 4 zones sur une même colonne. Surtout si ce sont des lettres qui risqueraient de ne plus être lisibles.
      Par contre, un “l” ou un “e” minuscules ne devraient avoir au maximum que 3 zones, à moins que tu sois en italique… quelle police as-tu utilisée ?

      Il ne faut pas trop de zones discontinues sur une même verticale, il faut donc des motifs style “silhouette”.

      Tu n’en as pas besoin, à partir du moment où tu pixelises c’est suffisant (dans la colonne de droite, la vignette de ton calque n’est plus une lettre mais une image).

      Ce tuto (le tout premier paru sur tout le net !) t’explique la marche à suivre pour créer ton propre patron. Il faut en effet recommencer pour chaque modèle.
      Si tu ne souhaites pas passer par toutes ces étapes de création, tu peux :
      – trouver une vingtaine de patrons gratuits sur mon site (clic sur “Livre plié” dans les mots clés, colonne de droite),
      – commander un patron sur mesure (clic ICI).

      S’il n’y a aucun niveau de difficulté dans le pliage des livres, il y en a dans la conception des patrons. Je te conseille de commencer par une forme relativement simple : pas plus de 2 ou 3 zones sur une même colonne.
      Je veux bien t’aider mais il faudrait que tu me dises à quelle étape du tuto tu coinces… ;-)

      As I’m working with black/white colors and with pixels, the resolution doesn’t matter. Just check that the ruler is in pixels (right click on it).

    Thanks for this tutorial, I am really looking forward to trying it out however I don’t have a laptop yet so I must wait!
    I am curious as to why do we times the height by 12? you mention it’s because of distortion… But folding distorts the width… I’m just a little confused.
    On another note, I use an iPad… Do you know of any apps I could use to help me?
    Thanks again for your help.

      17 Oct 2015

      The x12 is to balance the width distortion : folded, sheets take more place, and it’s easier to balance the height than the width ;-) I find this number by making tries.
      I invented this technic 3 years ago (plagiarized by many) but my computer knowledge doesn’t allow me to create an app… :?

    Would love to have the love template for my son to give to his girlfriend for 4 year anniversary. I don’t understand when the measurements on some of the files are not in rounding cm’s how do you do that? Unfortunately I am not totally understanding how to even start with photoshop when setting my measurements. My rulers are in .1 places. What font are you using for LOVE and how do I start when my book is 23 cm (9 in)and 284 sheets (568 page numbers).

(Height x 12 – 304.8,, Width- 700 sheets in my book)
        and one more thing, i want 2 layers of words in the book. do i cut the sheets of the book as others suggest or fold it alternately?

          Your numbers seem right : height in cm x 12 = 305 / number of sheets (your book has 1400 pages?) But you have to use pixels unit!
          The rendering of the design is good until you don’t have more than 4 or 5 areas in a same column. So it will depend on the letters you want to use…
          For me, keeping the book intact is a challenge. I prefer to change my project than to cut the sheets… ;-)

    I went through all the steps, have all the lines removed where specified. The only thing I dont get, Is making the guides, so I can see the pixel amounts, to turn that into measurements, I just cant figure out how to make it tell me the pixels, very frustrated, spent two hours making this pattern, and Im worried I wont be able to use it.
    Could I just print out what I have made and measure it all by hand? Could you send me your pattern? Maybe Im doing it wrong, or overlooking something.
    The newest photoshop program is a little different than your tutorial.

      Making a pattern takes time, but I’m afraid about printing your pattern (there may be distortion).

            Hey back again with another question, what size font do you suggest using. I’ve got a few books to make with long names, finding it impossible to use the 130 pt Times New Roman alphabet I have made. How small is too small for the font size? I just want to be able to make some longer names without having to find 1200 page (600 sheet) books, haha

            05 Oct 2015

            I never look at font size, I just fit it to the book.
            For long word not every font can be used. For those kind of word I distort the font and Cooper is the best one for that!

    Thank you for providing the heart pattern for me to download. I’m off to search for the right book to get started. I would be grateful if you could send me the pattern for ‘Love’ as they will make a wonderful display together.
    Thank you in advance.

    I found your site and want to thank you for the free patterns of hearts. I’m married 55 years and have just found this new hobby of book folding. I would like to do the love, but can’t do the photoshop thing. You are a wonderful person for so generously sharing your talentD!!! Again I thank you.

      Scroll up and look at the image of the letter “e”. There are sections like the letter g with multiple folds in the same column. Each fold requires its own sheet. “first sheet for the upper part,
      second sheet for the middle part,
      third sheet for the lower part”

      – open the book by the start (in the same way that if you wanted to read),
      – follow the measurements tab starting by the first line?
      Can you give me the upper & lower mark of your very first sheet?

    Bonjour Faitmain-Faitcoeur,
    Tout d’abord, merci pour ce tuto très bien expliqué.
    J’ai réalisé un essai de dessin (je vous enverrai une photo) et je souhaiterais plier un annuaire (c’est un peu ambitieux mais j’ai tout mon temps). Les pages étant très fines, j’aimerais savoir ce que vous me conseilleriez. Faut-il plier 2 pages au lieu d’une seule ?
    Merci pour votre future réponse

    Reply
    •  

      11 Jul 2014

      Sacré projet !! Mes conseils :
      – ne marquez pas votre papier à la pointe (trop fin il risque de déchirer),
      – vouloir plier 2 pages en même temps est risqué : les deux feuilles ne suivront jamais la même marque,
      – renforcez la couverture trop souple de l’annuaire ou votre livre ne tiendra pas debout,
      – armez-vous de courage, il y a vraiment beaucoup de pages dans un annuaire… ;-)
      Oh oui, je veux bien une photo !

    I would really enjoy folding LOVE now . I already have a book with 528 pages. Is it to many pages? My daughter is getting married and it would be my special present for them.
    I also would love to fold the wedding date. If you know how to can you also teach me.
    Thank you so much!

      “Love” needs 236 sheets (472 pages). Look at the F.A.Q. to adapt the pattern to your 528 pages.
      Surely I may help you if you have any problem to create your own pattern, but if you read the tuto I am sure you will succeed ;-)

    Bonjour,
    Je viens de découvrir votre site et je vais essayer ce pliage de livre.
    Juste une question.
    Sous photoshop quand vous zoomez sur vos lettres, les contours de celles-ci sont bien nettes.
    Moi quand je zoome les contours sont flous, ça me fait des pixels gris clairs et foncés autour des noirs donc moins précis pour les repères.
    Comment faites vous pour avoir un contour noir bien précis au pixel près ?
    En tout cas BRAVO

      29 May 2014

      Il y a une petite astuce ;-)
      – créez votre patron (adaptez la taille, vérifiez qu’il n’y a pas d’espace entre vos lettres…),
      – cliquez sur “image”, “mode” et “couleurs indexées” (attention, si vous avez plusieurs calques ils vont être fusionnés),
      – “palette : local (perceptive)”, “couleurs : 2”, “Forcées : noir & blanc”, “options : sans”,
      – votre contour est nette mais le calque est verrouillé…,
      – cliquez sur “image”, “mode” et “couleurs RVB”,
      – double cliquez sur votre calque pour le dévérouiller,
      – vous pouvez maintenant faire quelques retouches :-)

    I’m a high school teacher, and in the summer I teach crafts to ESL students. I would love to teach my students the “LOVE” pattern. Will you share it with me?
    IT’s so beautiful, and it is one of the first words that they learn.

    Hi,
    So I stumbled on your site while trying to search for instructions on how to fold books into words for a Altered Book program I am hosting over the summer. Low and behold, I found the pdf of “Love” from Instructables. I am a programming librarian out of Florida – and think that this is just awesome. I wanted to send a ‘thank you’ for providing such wonderful material. Even though I don’t have photoshop, it is spurring me to figure out how to map out other words like “read” and “create”. It is for a library after all.
    Thanks.

    Hi again, You have been so helpful to so many, myself included.
    I am trying to fold three books into the words Faith, Family, Friends and brother I am not successful at all.
    Is there any chance you have patterns for these words using a capital letter for the first letter and lower case letters for the rest of the words.
    Thanks so much for helping.

    I was hoping I could find a free pattern for the word – love – or your pattern for the couple.
    My daughter is getting married and she loves books always has she basically has a library. This would be a perfect gift from her mom.
    Also my sister died with cancer at 40 -3 years ago and my daughter really misses her and talks about her not being here for the wedding. I would love to find a pattern for the word JOY that was her name.
    If you could help me I would be truly thankful.

      You have a slow learner here. I requested the pattern for the word love with the heart for the “O” and explained that I don’t have access to photoshop. You replied the pattern was sent. I can’t find it anywhere. I guess I need to go back to computer 101. It looks like you are swamped with requests and you have been so gracious about sharing–I appreciate that very much.
      If you can send me the pattern–like your other patterns–I know I can handle that.
      Thanks so much for your hard work and in sharing your talent.
