    I fully agree with rots...

    A black book is a homemade sketch book. Get some unlined photocopy paper and some cardsheet for a cover.

    The hardest part is making book binding glue:
    You need some bleach and ammonia, and some woodworking or animal glue. A little red wax is nice too.
    You take a container and pour in about a cup of each ammonia, bleach and woodworking glue and a little wax if you want.
    Keep a eye on the mixture, its important to stay nearby and mix it.
    Keep stirring until the mixture is uniform.

    You will now have a strong thin glue, a little hint of red to it if you added the wax.

    Take about 100 sheets of photo paper and fold the card sheet around it as desired for your cover, then cut away the excess of paper.
    Paint the inside of the "spine", the middle of the cover were the paper touches, with the glue mixture then fold the cover around the paper again with the paper firmly pressed against the spine.

    Put a brick on it to press it down and leave it for 2 days, save the excess glue in your fridge with a cover over top in case you didnt bind the book right and need to try again.

    Have fun.

    A blackbook is a fucking book you draw in... They just tend to be black and hard... No pun intended.

    And yeah i agree with 80% of the posts, this thread is retarded.

    Because it's roughly about 11 pages of people saying how the thread is stupid and asking why there is so many posts in it. All we are doing by moaning is making it last lol.

    I only read the first page so if the topic has changed, fuck it, but since when do blackbooks need to ACTUALLY be black?
