Creative Adventures in Handmade BooksBook - 2013
Make books as interesting as the stories you want to tell! In this inspiring guide, artist and teacher Margaret Couch Cogswell pushes the boundaries of bookmaking through twenty-two traditional and experimental projects. Start off with a beginner-friendly accordion fold book or a classic journal. Then open your mind with a rolling "story dispenser" or an innovative bird made from book pages! Along the way, learn how to fashion various bindings; construct forms with paper, fabric, and metal; and create decorative effects. Conversational instructions and artist features will inspire you to find your own creative voice.
