And so the books were bound, with scratchy old burlap
Lol apologies for the title, you really can't talking about binding of books without it sounding... powerful and deep or something. Says something about books tho.
Much like this burlap says something about me, plain and prairies, potatoes and pumpkins, brown as dirt and twice as scratchy. Ahhh, I can't even tell you how many fond memories I have of large sacks of potatoes, picking them, filling them... I get off-topic. Anyways, me and burlap go back, thus why the beautiful binding. OOOhhhh, I love how it looks all... different thickness in different places, very homemade feel. I like it. That said, I also put a blessing of kindness and storytelling in the binding of the DMG, so that covers any scratchyness in that one lol. Also burlap feels awesome anyway, thank you Greyhawk. But anyways, for the modules I've printed, those needed just plain old string.
And speaking of, MAN, the wonders I've had with string. Oohhhhh, it was a rare commodity, maybe once did I find it at my parent's place. My Grandma's place, that's where there was a large spool of string. We used it sparingly, making little bows or crafts. It was hard to come across back then, so it really only came out once or twice, but I have fond memories. And it would also look better on the modules, avoid the everything-is-made-of-burlap direction that that could have gone. Also string is now readily available.
I had to put the Tomb of Horrors in red, I had to, it was there, I couldn't not do that*. It's *so* classic and well-known, I had to give it that extra. So I am pleased. I've bound all of these modules (thank you DriveThruRPG), with a clear cover sheet no less, in nice rustic twine and string and ribbon. Added plus side, that ribbon opportunity opened the door to future bindings possibly being in other colours, blue, grey, green. On that note, see below for the grass-greened binding on Temple of the Frog, because of course.
Furthermore, this little pile of literature, when combined with the D&D books that I came across by chance recently, now give me one book for every major version of D&D, from 0e Greyhawk to OneDND Unearthed Arcana!
* Also I blessed this one with fun and storytelling.
ALSO MOAR BOOKS!
