Good morning readers.
Last night I had the awesome experience of being able to see Reba & Kelly in concert. What a treat! It was the best concert I have ever been to. If they are coming to your town, get tickets now. You won’t be diappointed.
The Weekly book challenge is under way and there have been some great examples posted over on the Flickr site. Come on over and play with us. Skill level is not important. The idea is to get you to try new things with your binding, possibly learn something along the way and of course, the big one, have fun!
If you’re a beginner and are not sure where to start, try the simple sewn book tutorial or the basic accordion book from my guides page. Both syles are easy to put together and allow for a good deal of creativity when it comes to the covers.
Rhonda of the My Handbound Books blog has reposted her Origami Waterlily Book tutorial.
Janette Hefernan has a new DVD out, The Leather Bound Book DVD with Peter Goodwin. If you’re familiar with the Bookbinding With Peter Goodwin series of DVD’s then you’ll know that they are all informative as well as entertaining to watch. This new one is no exception. I’ll have a full review of the DVD this weekend for you.
I hope everyone has a great day!
