BOOK PROJECTS

Books, Booklets and Accordions

If you are into calligraphy wanting to attempt a handwritten book is a given. Not a weighty tome mind you. Only a few pages for special occasions like weddings, birthdays and such. It's obvious that some carefully handwritten sheets need appropriate cover design. Which led me to learn about bookbinding.

The possibilities seem endless: accordions, slipcases, hard covers, hinged, glued, sewn, any size, shape or material will make a handmade book a special reading experience and a beautiful gift.

Experimenting with different materials especially for the covers to surround the hand-lettered paper proofed to be fun. I've used coarse fibered paper, some scrap of silk or cotton that has been leftover from my sewing projects. Leather, wallpaper, and prints of my silk paintings work fine, too.

My absolute favorites are folded accordions as you will see in the examples below. They are easy to make and fit every occasion. Be it a photobook, a showcase of memorabilia or a greeting card of a different kind.
