Wednesday morning musings and 124 days…

Filed under: Morning Musings, Popup books, stuff to buy — jackie @ 8:33 am

Good morning readers.

Yesterday was a busy day finishing projects, running errands and getting ready for school. Last night we had a major storm blow through and power went out for a short time. It brought with it high winds, thunder and lightning and some more of the much needed rain.

It’s Wednesday and of course the day that I mention possiible sites to visit to find book arts gifts as well as gifts for your book artist.

Fototiller is a website covering all things photographic, with a particular focus on the intersection of photography and design. They do mention journals and albums as well as other unique gift ideas. One of my favorites that they mention is this pop-up album. You can also see a little video about the album here. Make sure to count how many times the announcer says “photo-pop pop-up photo album”. :D

Here’s a Christmas pop-up photo album which is actually kind of cool from the Goffengel Workshop.

Moo has some unique items that would make great gifts. Not only do they have those great little Moo cards but they also have sticker books and notecards. The sticker books would make a great promo item for your handmade books.

I hope everyone has a great day.

  3. Hi Jackie
    Thank you for the mention of our Pop-up Christmas album on your blog. Our Photo books are a great combination of a Pop-up book, photo album, and scrap book all wrapped up in one. Each design takes over a year to develop, sample, and produce. Each book is 100% handmade and come with a protective slip case. They are moving paper works of art. We have 5 titles now, baby, wedding, christmas, Rocket to Pluto for little boys, and Fairytale Dreams for little girls. Currently we are working on the Bar/Bat Mitzvah book and a romantic album all based on 18/19th century botanicals. I invite you to explore our website, goffengel.com and play in the galleries.
    Again my thanks and best!
