Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 7:35 am

Good morning surfers…

It’s sunny and chilly here in Virginia Beach this morning but there’s no need to get wet and sandy when you can do all the surfing you want from the comfort of your easy chair. So grab a cup of something hot and lets go surfing.

Fisrt up this morning, if you’re a book collector or just enjoy looking at fine book you’ll enjoy browsing the site of Julia Rothman, Book By It’s Cover. She has all the books broken into easily browsed categories and gives information about each book. She also tells you where you can find the books for purchase.

A Flickr site with some great handmade books.

Another Flickr site with some interesting handmade books.

And another Flickr site

This Flickr site is interesting. It has photos of a class taken with Jim Croft who teaches folks how to make thie own bookbinding tools from bone. Take a look at this big honkin book he made. Very cool.

I’ll leave you this morning with one more interesting site, Gary Frost’s Future of the Book. From the site “This web site visualizes the future of the codex book. We consider hybrid topics between reading behaviors, traditional book use in the context of digital delivery systems, library preservation and book art. An underlying concept is that libraries are playing out the future of the traditional book right now. In this perspective, libraries play as large a role as a progressive publishing industry, an avant guard book arts community or enticing technologies of book equivalents.” Def. check out the “Reports” section. Lots of interesting essays.

I’ll be back a little later this afternoon to announce the winner of the grand prize drawing. 

Surf’s up!
