Sunday morning books and coffee…

Filed under: Commissioned Works, Inspiration, Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:02 am

Good morning readers.

A few years ago I wrote a little booklet on making Polaroid image transfers. I use it regularly as a handout when I teach my classes. Even though it’s not a book arts technique, it is another tool in the box for creating visual journals so I have reformatted it and have to made it available on my free tutorials page.  Enjoy!

So…I was digging around in some old files looking for some specific pictures and found these photos of a custom book I made many years ago. It was commissioned by a friend’s husband for said friend as a holiday present. The binding is leather and fox fir (the fox fir was from a road kill) with a metal and antler closure. The box is custom made to look like a cigar box. It is padded and lined in velvet. If I recall correctly, the book size is about 5″X6″ or so.

Of note…

The site of Estonian Leather Artists Association is not in english but if you click on the name of each artist most of them will have some great examples of some books done in unique leather bindings along with their info.

I hope everyone has a great day.
