A while ago I alluded to a book I sent to a friend in Boston but didn't post pictures of it because it was, you know, a surprise. There was also a book I said I'd made but couldn't show you because it was a gift. Well, now here are some pictures of the books that had been shrouded in such mystery. Remain calm.
So, there's a bookmaking update for you. I also gave Braed's dad a book for Christmas that I'd made for class but lamely forgot to take a picture before handing it over. I will tell you, however, that he really liked it. So much, in fact, that he kindly requested a handmade book each year. I love book love.
|Teddy Bear book inspired by Jacob's second blog.|
|As soon as I saw this paper I knew it had to go into Jacob's book because |
it looked gross and moldy and Jacob loves things that look gross and moldy.
|This book was for Braeden's sister Vanessa:|
it's a rebinding of her favorite book by Neil Gaiman.
|I speckled the edges. No big deal.|
