Flag Book Gallery

I was teaching my Introduction to Handmade Books class this morning and one of the structures we talked about was flag books. It’s a structure I haven’t explored a great deal, so I decided to make up a gallery of flag books to inspire them and my blog readers. Click on each photo to be taken to the creator’s website. Enjoy!

The first book was made by Hedi Kyle, the book artist who invented the flag book structure.

The flags in this second book by Haly Nagy Flag are made from encaustic and handmade cotton paper.

I love the use of positive and negative elements in Sharon Sharp’s book about bats.

Flag books are a great way to show photographic imagery in new and interesting ways, just like Linda Cunningham did in her book called Horizon.

Finally, Vermont book artist Elissa Campbell was inspired by the beautiful Fall foliage in her state.
