For centuries, humans have been developing methods to create and bind paper in order to share ideas, knowledge, and inspiration with each other and with future generations. The craft of creating books has evolved over time, but the basic human need to share words and pictures has stayed the same. In this badge, try gluing, stitching, and folding your way to shaping your own book-artistry style—you'll create some spectacular gifts and keepsakes.

  1. Explore the art of bookbinding
  2. Get familiar with the insides of a book
  3. Try out book artist techniques
  4. Focus on function
  5. Focus on style

When I've earned this badge, I'll know how to make different kinds of books.  

This badge curriculum comes in a packet with the Book Artist, Woodworker, Special Agent, Trailblazing, and Babysitter badges. However, you may purchase the Book Artist badge at any GSGST shop.
