Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 9:36 am

The weather here is bright and sunny and cold but it’s warm and toasty inside here by the computer so grab your fuzzy slippers and your favorite morning beverage and let’s get surfin’.

First up is Clarellen. If you’ve been thinking about creating books with your own content this is the site to check out. Douglas Holleley’s book Digital Book Design and Publishing is an excellent resource for anyone looking to publish their own books. In his book he walks you through the process of designing your book digitally all the way through to diff. ways of self publishing. He even has a section on binding your own editions. On his site there are lots of examples of the books he has created and published as well.

On her site Moote Points, Cheryl Moote offers instructional manuals as well as videos and kits on bookbinding and creating your own small editions of books .

If you’re looking for a little eye candy, WeitzColman creates some cool and unusual leather books. Def. work a look.

Have you ever thought about making a book from scratch? Literally? If you have, the Oldways workshop is for you. Book artist Jim Croft will take you on a 14 day adventure of making books from tree to cover. You’ll even make your own tools. How cool is that?

I’ll leave you with one more cool site this morning, check out this handmade book on Antartica. It’s pretty amazing.

I hope everyone has a great time surfing this morning. Til next week. Surf’s up!
