Secret Belgian – Bullet Journal Bookbinding Tutorial

I really like bookbinding, and one of my favorite techniques is Secret Belgian. I’ve taught friends and classmates and even led a workshop on how to make these. For my workshop, I made exhaustive notes, and since bullet journalling is so popular, I thought it’d be nice to share these, since the style of the notes themselves are practically a bullet journaling entry and other people who’ve seen them in real life have found them helpful. And also, how cool and hipster would it be to bullet journal in a book you made? Pretty fuckin’ cool if I do say so myself.

Here are some examples of a finished Secret Belgian journal:

The process of making this book has two basic parts, building the cover and sewing in the pages, so that’s how I split up my notes! Here we go!

I hope you found this helpful! If you have any questions at all, ask away!
