I love books, and I seem to be appreciating them more with each passing year, but a day of being off the computer and using my hands (and brain) to create something tangible was like being able to take a deep breath... it was like having a day in the darkroom, only there were more people around... and it was light.
Since it was my first attempt at this craft I was too focused on the measuring and sewing and gluing the right spots, to get any photos during the process, but rest assured, I will be making more. In fact, I'm already trying to figure out how to re-organize my studio to make room for an area that could just be set up for bookmaking.
If you are interested in learning more or making a book on your own, I would suggest taking the course through Luz Studio & Gallery, here in Victoria. Studio owner/photographer/bookmaker, Quinton has been at this for years and I must say he's a very patient teacher!
