A day in Book making heaven
Well I just spent the whole day immersed in making a book, in an awesome workshop with Liz Constable. It took a large flat white and a date scone for me to wake up enough to get into it but once I did.....nothing stopping me. My book has wooden covers, painted, jig-sawed, hammered and drilled. I used ochre dyed card, scorched with an iron and then tunnel cut. The book is coptic stitch bound - my first effort at coptic - and I will finish it with a small shrine inside. Then I'll post a photo. Soon.
