Happy New Year

Happy 2016 – I hope you had a splendid holiday season! I took a few weeks off at the end of December, but I’m ready to get back to blogging. I’m pressing forward with my 50 Book Project with book number 28 – a 3-signature book with a braided spine binding.

The binding is from volume II of Keith Smith’s series of books on non-adhesive bindings. ┬áThe cover is a piece 80lb mixed media paper that I hand-marbled. I love this weight of paper for these soft cover books. ┬áHere are some more close up shots:

One Thought on “Happy New Year

  1. Ali – I get your newsletter and come to your blog periodically. I just want to tell you how much I enjoy seeing your books! Although I do not make many books, and the ones I do make are very simple, I get great pleasure looking at the wonderful work you do and following the links you give in your newsletter. Thank you!
