i spent the weekend at Roz's studio for a bookmaking workshop
taught by Sharon from the Printing Press Durban.
on the first day we did the book above,
unfortunately i can't remember the name...
it now has a cover as well but i still need to do some trimming
below is the coptic book we made on the second day.
i used old painting as covers.
the idea with the coptic style is to leave the stitching on the spine
to show, they form a pretty pattern and make it look deliciously handmade.
i love the book feels and i can't wait to start sketching in it.
i loved making something 3 dimensional again,
i realized i am missing that since i have been to pottery this year.
what a treat to be making something out of bits and pieces...
it's in the simple things ;)
