Step 1: Draw a rectangle Draw a rectangle with one corner pointing toward the lower edge of your paper. Tip Use a ruler if you have difficulty drawing straight lines. Step 2: Add corners Draw slightly curved backward Cs from the rectangle's three points closest to the page bottom. These will determine the width of your book. Step 3: Add binding and pages Draw straight lines parallel to the lower two edges of your rectangle, connecting the C curves. Create pages by drawing multiple straight lines inside the small lower left rectangle you just created. Tip Adding a bookmark or pair of glasses to the drawing will give life to your picture. Step 4: Add details Create small triangles at the upper points of the book by drawing short diagonal lines across the book cover. Draw a line parallel to the top line of the binding about the width of the binding and shade the spaces you created. Step 5: Add more details Add design and a title to the binding for flair, because you never know who might judge this book by its cover. Did You Know? Did you know?
