I am an aspiring book artist and I love the art and craft of bookmaking. I make artist books as well as blank books. This is a very small sampling, and I'm working on posting more!
"Death Is Nothing At All", made from twigs, twine, cyanotype images. Housed in a clam-shell box covered in book cloth.
Handmade embellished paste paper covers, hand torn paper, hand sewn text block. Perfect for journaling, sketching, and travel. 6"x4"
I made this to organize my cards, pictures, ephemera, and notes by year.
A zig-zag design coptic stitch blank book with decorative paper covers, filled with Rives BFK hand-torn paper. "This fine printmaking paper is mouldmade in France and has a smooth, absorbent surface. Rives Papers, made of 100% cotton, are acid free, soft-sized, and buffered. Rives is perfectly suited for lithography, intaglio, screenprinting, relief printing, linocut, collotype, and drawing." This book would make a great art journal.
This is a display I did at an art show of some of my small blank books and leather jouranls
