Yes that was what I was thinking myself after a bit more reading. I think what I will end up doing is to just purchase an already printed novel, and then make my own cover for it. Perhaps one day I waill have enough experiance to do it all from scratch, and I assume at that point ill know how to do this craft much better.
In a related note, I ordered supplies from hollanders to rebind my first book. Need a few things from Talas, and then I will be ready to try my hand at a fabric bound hardcover. I am actually excited over this hehe.
