Look! I made a book!

Over the last two Saturdays I took a bookbinding class hosted the Paper Crane. Participants get to construct their own book (one complete, and one in-progress above) and then we have until early March to, gasp, fill it up. So this is really just step one! I’ve been interested in bookbinding for years and finally this project is an excuse to actually do something with that. And hey, I took the photos too, on our deck. Not bad for a gray November Sunday, eh?

Materials:
kitchen twine
beeswax
needle
bone folder
bookbinding cloth
book board
ribbon
PVA glue
Paper (duh)
Awl

Otherwise, this might well be the most I can muster for a blog post this week, with the holiday, family, and the common cold all making their rounds this week. (Some less welcome than others… I’m looking at YOU germs). But I’ll catch you when I can!
