Sunday morning coffee and musings…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:54 am

Good morning readers.

It’s a beautiful, sunny and cool day so far here in Va. Beach. 

I appreciate the comments by readers on my question about teaching. It’s been an uphill battle to get students in classes of late. When I do demonstrations there are alot of people that seem to be interested in the book arts but I also think that people in general are way busier than they used to be, especially is they have children, so even taking a couple hours for a class is a stretch for some.

So, my question now is, how do you make the classes sound interesting enough so that people will want to take those few hours out of their weekly schedule to learn how to make a book?

Of note…

Remember this cool little tutorial? Here’s a link to a video by Judy over at Photojojo showing how they are made.

I was thinking that I’d like to make a few books like these but I would probably sew signatures of plain paper together then put the covers on as she shows in the tutorial. I’m not a big fan of perfect bound books but they do work well when using stacks of misc. papers.

I hope everyone has a great day.
