While I was a teaching assistant for a bookbinding class, I experimented with combining different styles of book binding and stitching techniques. Here I used the French Link and Coptic Stitch but had to research on my own on how to combine them efficiently.


I was also doing advanced typesetting and exploring GREP searches on the side, so I created blog posts to share my knowledge with others. My notes became an in-depth demonstration in class.


For one of my demos I taught in class, I created a GREP search for finding quotes in your basic paragraph and changing them all to an italic character style. This effectively changed all of the quotations in an entire document from regular copy to correctly formatted text, saving time and energy for designers and copy editors.
