I've been making books.
I was taught how to make these lovely book structures by the very talented Heather Power who is actually a printmaker but also makes fabulous book structures. Although I have made several of them over the years I've never taught anyone else how to make them.
However, next month I'm teaching a class to our Guild called "Fold, Stitch and Stick"* on how to make these books... and it is one thing being able to make a book myself but a completely different matter showing someone else how to do it.
So I thought some practise was due to get the method clear in my head... and I've ended up with books of all sizes from 6" square to less than 3" square
And I've remembered how much I like to construct books.
I rarely do anything with them (I have a box full) but it is the process that fascinates me
I'm thinking it is about time I started using them!
I'm also wondering if I can go smaller...
But not this afternoon as I must dash... off to Chelmsford EG to give a talk this evening.
* If you are reading this and booked on this class let me know and I'll email you the requirements list!
