Shereen LaPlantz’ popular how-to book titled, "Innovative Bookbinding: Secret Compartments & Hidden Messages," was a massive hit that sold out instantly in two hand-bound editions... More > in 1997 and 2000. After multitudinous requests, we are pleased to present this 2013 edition.

Shereen LaPlantz made her final transition in 2003. Thanks to the dedication of her husband, David LaPlantz, this 2013 edition has been very carefully recreated and is lovingly dedicated to Shereen’s memory and all of the magic and love she gave to the Book Arts world. As Shereen always said, “Make fun books!”< Less
