With pencil and rule draw a plan of the open folio and properly dimension the drawing. (See Plate 1.) If there has been no previous training in simple mechanical drawing, the use of extension and dimension lines, arrow heads, and the proper placing of figures should be explained. If some proficiency in this kind of drawing has been acquired, a freehand sketch may take the place of an accurate drawing.
Plate II. Shows some of the line conventions used in making a working drawing. In the same manner as for the pages, draw a plan of the cover, which should project beyond the pages form 1/8 to Â¼ of an inch. Layout and cut the cover and one sheet for the inside, keeping carefully on the lines.

through the center hole, from the inside out, back to the inside through an end hole, outside through the center hole, inside through the other end hole, and tie the ends in a square knot (see illustration, Plate IV) near the center of the fold. Other equally satisfactory methods of sewing may be worked out.
