I had planned to take a 2-day workshop at the Pacific Northwest Art School on Whidbey Island this month towards my goal of making a "Proper Book" but the class was canceled for lack of interest. This rather surprises me as interest in the book arts seem to be growing recently. The quantity of books about bookmaking which I have justified the purchase of, is ample evidence of this I would think.
One of my March books was a Starbucks cup used as the container for a small book of ATC (Artist Trading Cards, some of which used Starbucks stickers. I noted that my daughter had come into an large supply of them and thought I would show you how she used them to cover boxes.
|This was a cigar box, but she used various boxes and various combinations of stickers.|
At any rate, just so you know, my Year of the Book is going splendidly. If you haven't visited that blog yet, or recently, please do - the link is to your right.
