Ready, set, go with hand bookbinding

Completed Lynne Crocker’s wonderful Hand Bookbinding class at The Button Factory in Portsmouth a couple of weeks ago. So much fun! Never ever will I look at a book in the same way I did prior to this class. Now I see a whole new world in a single volume: paper grain, signatures, smooth and rounded spines, headcaps and headbands, board papers, mitred corners and more. Don’t you just love it? In class, we hand bound three different types of books: a single signature book with folded cover, an accordian book with paste paper cover (we made the paste paper), and an eight signature case-bound book. Beginning now and continuing through this winter I’ll continue the new body of work I began printing this summer (Seacoast Women), plus will begin combining monotypes, writing and hand bookbinding.
