Crown Book StructureThe seeming simplicity of folded book structures easily lend to creating more complex structures.  The crown binding, also known as the Blizzard Book created by Hedi Kyle, is a popular structure because the pages are removable and changeable. The crown forms both the spine and the movable tabs that hold the pages in place. In this workshop you will learn the basics of folding and explore the versatility of this structure can serve as prototypes for future projects.
