Thursday morning musings…

Filed under: General, Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:31 am

Good morning readers.

A quick shout out to all you folks from Canada who stop by everyday to read my ramblings. Thanks for reading the blog so faithfully.

I found a few sites while out surfing yesterday that I thought you all might find interesting. If you haven’t checked out the bookbinding section over at Wikipedia you should. There’s lots of great information that’s starting to develop.

I found this article (this site has music so turn off your sound if you’re at work :) ) on a wonderfully intricate binding created by bookbinder Paul Tronson. There are some great photos of the book cover he has created for his Archangel Grimoire. There is also an interview with Paul.

Here is an interesting German site that show several examples of book repair. Even if you don’t read German the photos are pretty good at explaning what is going on. You can also translate the pages using Babel fish.

Those sites should keep you busy for a while. If anyone has a site that they think I should mention on the blog during my ramplings just shoot me an email and I’ll check it out.

As always, I hope everyone has a great day.
