Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 8:30 am

Good morning readers.

It’s Sat. and you know what that means. Grab your double half-caf mocha latte and let’s get surfing!

First up is CaiLun the paper and book making blog of artist Dennis Yeun. From his online bio, “While Dennis has been making books since he was a child he began designing and making books professionally in 2004. He practices Coptic, long stitch, stab, pamphlet and flat-back binding, often applying variations on these traditional techniques to fascinating effect.” This site is def. worth a visit to see his beautiful work. You can also check out Dennis’s portfolio website for more great photos of his books here.

Papermusings is a the blog of Toronto book artist Natalie. She has some nice photos of her work as well as info on her processes.

Book artist and teacher Kristin Saegaert is one of my readers and recently sent me a nice email which included a link to her blog. You need to go check out her beautiful coptic stitch books.

RE:Paper is the website of book artist and photographer Sara Hindmarch. She has some lovely photos of her work on the site.

The Old Stile Press is the site of Frances and Nicolas McDowell. It is not a book arts site but is worth checking out as they publish some beautiful books. Especially if you are interested in creating custom bindings for preprinted books. From their information page “At The Old Stile Press, we design, print by hand and publish books in editions limited to between 100 and 250 copies. These involve texts of importance, whether new or reprinted, together with suites of wood engravings, woodcuts, linocuts and other relief blocks made by the artist-printmakers with whom we collaborate.”

Surf’s up!
