    Hello Ali, thanks for sending this link to your book binding project. It’s very ambitious but so far the books look beautiful.
    The gelatin plate print looks lovely as a cover. I’ve signed up and will be watching what you make over the next few months. I’m also tempted to have a go at making something! So thanks to all the links as well.
    Best wishes, Cathy (from Linda’s Making Monotype Class)

      Thanks for stopping by Cathy. Please share what you make with the monoprints we made – I’d love to see them.

    Hi Ali, I love the book. I bought a needle, thread and awl in the fall with every intention of making books this winter and you’ve really inspired me to get to that project. What kind of paper did you use for the signatures? I like the vintage paper glued on and then printed over giving the great texture. I will be following you and enjoying the inspiration!

    Amy – I used a 98lb mixed media paper by Canson. It’s just the right weight to hold the ink and to fold nicely into a soft book cover. Give it a try – I’d love to see what you make!
