Books.- A-Z Challenge 2018

B for Books...that gives me a lot of scope. There are endless books to choose from, and I am choosing  'Book Art' by Dorothy Krause today.
My copy arrived the other month, all the way from US. I heard about it when I watched the free course
'The thread that weaves' . It is a series of videos on how to make an artist book.
I have seen a lot of artists books on Pinterest and wish I could create something half as beautiful as the ones I have seen.

I made my first one recently as part of an art swap organised on journalworkshops.ning.com.

I used my vintage paper from a 1950's paper mill and some handmade Nepalese paper with petals embodied within it.
No camera though so no pics, although my swap buddy might post a pic then I can share it here.

Book Art has a load of ideas. I have another art swap this month and plan to make another tryptych for my swap buddy.

  1. Great post. I have hundreds of books at home and often re-read old favourites. I am not one for reading online books.

  3. Artists books sounds so good. Vintage paper is the very best :)
