I'm pretty new to book making, so this is rather rough. I made this flag book for a project on librarians in popular culture. Like I said, rather rough, and I think my books with sewed textblocks have looked nicer.

Ok, let's give if a try... [Oct. 18th, 2009|07:19 am]

Unlikely as it seems, do any of you know of a more active community for bookbinders/makers? Not just regarding the artistic/crafty aspect -which I know gets its attention from a pretty dynamic community at handmadebooks -, but more centered on artisan bindery and conservation work.

Mayhap on Dreamwidth, which is supposed to be a more artistic place?

Thank you!

MFA Thesis of Bookmaker [Nov. 30th, 2008|12:31 pm]

I can't how fast my MFA has gone! I am going to have an MFA thesis show and graduate next week. I'm freaked out and excited at the same time. I'll post a link to my flickr account with pictures of the show later this week. For now you get the card. My show opens on Friday Dec. 5th from 5-7 at the New Mexico State University Gallery of Art. My orals are on the 4th so I will be more crazy until then. Fun. If anyone is in the Las Cruces New Mexico area please stop by.

I'm almost finished with my degree and I'm just working on things for the show now, here's some photos from today of finished bits and pieces. I'll post some stuff in a couple of weeks of my actual exhibition :)



more at flickr (and there's explanations of each photo there too) and the website for the project.

Guidance and help [Apr. 16th, 2007|10:17 am]

Gentle folk,

I am creating an altered book for a class project that is going to mimic a photo album from the 1800s. I found a great photo album from that time frame but it was in perfect condition. So I have to get it old looking, fast.
