Some hipstery I’m not really a hipster I promise bird stencils

Three mockingbirds






































Three small japanese stab bindings, with birds.


Various Books Fall 2010 and Winter 2011

Here are several different books I’ve made in the last two months.









These books, from left to right: The first is a simple coptic binding done with hemp and fishnet handmade paper from a local art store.  The middle books is a button-hole binding with the end papers left long inside the cut-out section.  The third book is a slotted spine, also sewn with hemp.

Coptic detail.










This next one is a caterpillar binding

















These last two are hardbound books.  I made a whole series of hardbound books this winter, although sadly I sold most before getting around to photographing them.  Likewise the 2011 calendars I made were sold or given away before I pulled out my camera.
