Book Bonanza!

Yesterday I torn signatures for four books and covered 3 books worth of covers with my own paste paper. Today I placed each book elements in a basket and binge watched season one of The Closer while I coptic stitched the spines.

Book one for my son with a few "extras". Here it is in a basket along with my dyed threads and a wax votive for stitching.

Doesn't this remind you of Van Gogh's paintings?

An envelope glued to the inside of the back cover with paste paper over the adhesive and tabs for tucking it closed.

Here are little extras I popped in the book.

A few vellum pages.

Laminated bookmark

Cool rigid bubble rods for shipping to Malta.

This is a commissioned book

Below is a book for me unless someone else wants it ($45.) I absolutely LOVE this paper I made.


  1. You do such beautiful books! And yes, the cover of your son's book definitely makes me think of Van Gogh's work...

    1. It just arrived today in Malta. What a coincidence. He loved it and his wife Fiona, loved the rayon infinity scarf. LOVE those jewel tones.

  2. Little bits of you in the book for your son. Love those little line-y worm squiggles. I think YOU should have that book with the circles because you SO fell in love with them!!!


I love hearing your comments. Thanks for visiting
