The iron I purchased at a yard sale last month has been put to use pressing the book board for a Spirit Book base, my least favorite part of the process. The new books I've made since I started making the books again after a five year break have used recycled bases from older books. I'm starting small as I ease into making new ones and working on improving my attitude. While it doesn't carry the same peaceful, meditational quality that the stitching on the pages does, there is something soothing about brushing paste on board and smoothing with a folder.
to my online studio and journal where I share my love of making books, my art, and my thoughts on the creative process and the artist's life. Your comments are most welcome here and by email: susan(at)susangaylord.com.
