My Little Red Book

Happy Monday!! I was (so lucky) to be able to attend a course this Sunday in Stockholm on bookbinding, hard cover case binding. It was taught by Toby…a British guy you studied book binding and paper conservancy. It was a long day…11am – 5pm….there are many steps to making a book and he taught us with out any short cuts. Well, he did all of the preliminary cutting and measuring, which did save us a HUGE amount of time. But we used tapes and mulls and special glues and japanese papers. His multi-use book binding clamp, holding and tape sewing contraption was a work of art itself and he makes them by hand….I was really impressed with the whole class! Now, what oh what to draw in my handmade little red book???
