Handmade Book

Here are three views of the book I made in the bookbinding class last week at the Columbia Art Center--the front, back, and inside cover. In class, we cut, sewed, and glued the signatures, bound them together with bookboard and book cloth, and covered the book with decorative paper. An amazing experience. The paper I used for the cover was gorgeous wrapping paper we found at the Walters Art Museum gift shop when we saw the illuminated bible exhibit a few months ago.
