Saturday morning surf report…

Filed under: Surfs Up — jackie @ 8:45 am

Good Sat. morning all.

I thought I’d share a few interesting book sites with you this morning, as I know like me you have nothing better to do than spend all day hours surfing the web.

So…without further adieu, and brought to you directly from the bowels of my Favorites folder here are this Sat’s surfing reccommendations. Let’s catch a few waves together …

First up is Jase’s Books This guy does some amazing work with leather, metal, eyeballs and snakes. His books are very cool.

Next we have Volcano Arts This site is hosted by Christine Cox. She does some really cool metal covered books. Not only does she offer supplies and kits on her site, she has lots of great ideas, tutorials and information about bookbinding to check out. She also hosts a quarterly book swap that you can join. Check out the gallery of work from previous swaps.

Here’s a neat little site with information on making bookclasps.

Check out these wonderful carved wooden book covers at artist Barbara Yates’ site.

Cicada Books has some very interesting book structures. Visually a nice site to look around.

That’s it for this Sat. I hope you enjoy surfing around these sites. I’ll be putting up a few more next Sat. Until then, don’t forget to surf on back here to check out the latest news and happenings.

Who needs cold salty water and gritty sand when the best surfing is right here. Surf’s up!

  1. Thanks for doing the searching for us….what a time saver. I was pondering different ways to use the journals that I am making and I came across “Journal Jar” http://www.omnicron.com/~fluzby/sister-share/journal.htm
    They suggest you give the journal jar as a gift (filled with journal prompts).They give you over 400 prompts to get started. You cut them up, put them in a decorative jar and viola!
    Now I was thinking that a great gift would be a handmade journal BOX filled with prompts
    that matches a beautiful handmade journal as a gift….I am very intrigued by
    boxes too these days….Well I’ve got my Web surfing wet suit on (Bathrobe and slippers) and I am off to catch a wave : )
