52 week book challenge: Week 11- Dos-a-Dos Spiral Binding

As I have missed a week of this challenge I decided to do a double book this week.

Dos-à-dos binding (from the French meaning “back-to-back”) is a binding structure in which two separate books are bound together such that the fore edge of one is adjacent to the spine of the other, with a shared lower board between them serving as the back cover of both.

I like the idea of a book with lined pages of one side & plain pages on the other. Since I had a stash of  both plain & lined A5 paper to hand I decided to bind them  in a dos-a-dos fashion with a spiral binding. I made the covers slightly wider than I would have done for a single book so that the spirals on both sides wouldn’t interfere with the pages.
