Decided to make myself a little journal while I made a bunch for the teens that work in my studios. I decided to work some collage in it. I snagged a batch of antique maps, shared a few but snagged some for me. Laying down some basic journal pages. 40 super heavy weight pages, kid. Orange satin page marker and false end bands.handmade book cloth spine and hand printed covers. Pretty stoked with it. #bookbinding #printplay #artistsofinstagram #booklover

No kids in my studio for a few more hours so I e got sleater-kinney on blast. A few mini book covers drying out and soon to go onto the blocks. All gelli printed and the book cloth pictured previously makes the spine. Wrists are KILLIN me tho. #worthit #bookbinding #printplay #gifts #maker

It's been quite a long time since I made my own book cloth. Probably 10 or more years. cotton cloth printed with hello plates and acrylic paint. 1:3 pva:methyl cellulose for the glue. Long open time and dries clear and sturdy. Perfectly stiff for cutting to size and best of all not a bit of stretch. #bookbinding #printplay #printandbooksgotogether
