I just finished a bunch of new blank journals. Some have a hard cover with exposed spine and others have soft wrap-around covers. I am taking most of these shown to the Focus on Book Arts conference in Oregon this week, where I’ll have them for sale in the artist shop.
The newest children’s book that I illustrated is just about ready to head to print and should (fingers crossed) be ready for the Sequim Lavender Festival. Here is the cover of this book. It was a lot of fun to do the illustrations in this book.
I just finished painting a bunch of fabric to use to make into book covers. The next step is to get these cut out and start the process of making the journals. I’ll keep you posted.
I am so happy that Olympic Stationers in Port Angeles is now carrying some of my journals.
I have now taken Bookbinding 1 and 2 and they are great classes for learning the basics of classic bookmaking. Here are the 2 books we made during the last class. It is amazing the details involved in making these books.
I just finished my first set of travel journals. They are small 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 soft cover journals with a closing flap. They include a pen and have beads on the spine.
In addition to being at Colors of Sequim, I will also have my journals at Hart’ Fine Books just down the street. I will be sharing my First Friday time between these two businesses.
I am so happy to be able to do this and hope to see you at one of these stores.
