Handmade books





I've been looking forward to a book-making session for a while as a way of recycling the huge mountain of printed papers in my garage. I started by sorting and sizing different papers

a) wall papers and other printed papers
b) drawn on papers
c) lined papers
d) plain papers
e) coloured papers
f) tissue papers

etc

and then collated singular piles for each person. Finally I made sure the book 'read' well, just like a good story (with a few surprises) and stitched/stuck it all together. In the time-honoured tradition of Christmas present making this took much longer than I planned

My favourite Christmas present - a great bundle of living willow for weaving on the allotment

Thankyou Stinky
