Handmade Books

IMG_0758

I’ve recently learned how to make handmade sketchbooks/journals and have been practising. It’s quite straightforward, but fiddly and time-consuming cutting the paper, sewing it all together, then cutting bookcloth to cover the spine, but rewarding to make something. I think they look good with a print on the cover and back from my drawer of proofs. Now I need to see if anyone wants to buy one.

    1. Thanks! I will sell them soon. I’m just perfecting the binding method, then I’ll make a batch to sell on my website and in galleries in Devon. I’ll post when they’re ready.
