I took a couple of my japanese stab binding experiments and expanded them into new sketchbooks for me to fill up with randomness. I just can’t buy sketchbooks or journals anymore now that I can make them…and I seriously need more practice with a drill press. eesh.
Yes, I realize that this last image is a little blurry. My camera has been abused beyond what it can take anymore. I need to get a new one. *sigh* Oh, the first book is some leftover mat-like cardboard…I plan on decorating it with white ink so it’s not so plain. In my free time. Ha.
Hi I loved looking at all your Japanese stab bindings they are amazing!!! I am taking a book arts class and have to do a midterm on one of the books I’ve already done. I was wondering if you have a how to on any of your bindings.
Not tutorials as yet, but as you’re the third person to ask in the last week, I’ll probably be coming up with something soon. Let me know if there was a binding in particular that you wanted to see.
I actually really love the red sketchbook!!! I was thinking… I have to do a short presentation for my class on a book arts artist and I would love to know more about you so I could do it on you. I adore your work at least what I’ve seen so far. If you would email me I would love to talk to you more about how you got into book arts.
