Booklab video

This video is inspiring for those of us who tend to be a little imprecise and casual. The workshop is to die for! Notice, especially, the device that punches holes in the signatures.

The Eighth Year!


A few years ago when I had just joined the Book Arts Roundtable I remember that Karen finished up a monthly meeting with a demonstration of "book folding." We knew the demo was on the night's agenda and members brought along books, paperbacks or hardcovers, to try some of the folding styles. Ever since, whenever my local library annual book sale comes around I think about buying some used books to fold. I've never become so skilled as to attempt this. There's a lot of practice and planning that goes into figuring out the complexity of these folding jobs. Thank you to Pam Scheinman for sharing that link with the BAR.

Reschedule Frustration

As the winter of our discontent ensues, we are ever more discontented. Snow continues to pile up around us. Our monthly meeting had to be cancelled; a workshop moved to March; and a class, 2Books/2Bindings, originally planned as a series of four classes has met only once so far, interrupted by snow and ice. March, and Booked8 are just around the corner.
