One small book for a man...

Just a small project, but finally finished after generating a ton of scraps and recycling while practicing.

Folded Accordion Book

This is a folded accordion book from Gabrielle Fox's "Essential Guide to Making Handmade Books". The colors were chosen not for decoration but to keep track of which pieces went where, and to make it easier to see how the pieces interrelated in the finished work.

A small start, but one has to start somewhere!

Hi, DerekL. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I've responded to you there.

Congrats on your book. I own Gabrielle Fox's book too. It's own of my favorites, and I refer to it regularly. Another one I like is Cover to Cover, by Shereen LaPlantz.

I also have the LaPlantz, but the folded structures in Fox caught my eye. There's a lot of possibilities there.
