Today’s book (Green Chiyogami!)

ANY CHARACTER HERE

I adore chiyogami paper.  The texture and the patterns (not to mention the insanely vibrant colors!) are perfect for wrapping around book boards for book covers.  Chiyogami is Washi paper that has been hand stenciled or printed with traditional Japanese imagery using bright colors and patterns. This book is 5×7 and I used cotton ribbon & linen thread in the exposed spine.

Linen Tape Journal #1

This is my first and favorite book.  It’s 5×7 and the book board was wrapped in chiyogami paper. The signatures were sewn with linen thread. Linen tape is used on the spine.

Bird Book

Making books is my new favorite thing.  This is hand sewn with a coptic tape stitch and then glued together.  The covers are attached partly by ribbon.   The book is 6×6 & I used pretty heavy paper in this one (67lb).
