Thursday morning musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 11:18 am

Good morning readers.

Nothing exciting to report on the weather front today. Just the same old hot humid stuff as yesterday. Blech! The rain was nice but in the end just made it much more humid outside, though I think I heard that this weekend was going to be nice. We’ll see.

Of note…

The Art O Mat turns ten this year. A friend of mine got me a small book from one of these machines in one of the first years they were out. I think they are so cool.

Want to bind a custom copy of your favorite classic? Check out Project Guttenberg. Many old books are available as text downloads and can be reformatted to be printed out in signatures and bound into unique books.

Bookgirl has some interesting info about pop-up books in her blog post this morning. I would love to take a class with either of the artists she mentions. I am envious that she is going to Arrowmont. I went there back in the mid 90’s and took a papermaking for books class with John Risseeuw. I still have some of the paper that I made as well as the books.

Rhonda Miller has a book arts blog called My Handbound Books. It’s def. worth a look as she has alot photos posted of her work. Very inspiring.

I hope everyone has a great day.
