Book Arts Tuesday-Bookmaking with Children in Croatia

The connections we can make today in this digital world are amazing. Here is a message from Zoran from Croatia. We are now friends on facebook and are planning a collaborative book project which I'll share with you as it takes shape. For now, here's a bit about Zoran in his own words:

My name is Zoran Vidaković, I’m art teacher at Primary school and I live in Croatia. In 2008 after returning from Japan, I started to do handmade bookbinding. This enthusiasm for creating books I wanted to share with my students.

On the Internet I've found great site http://www.makingbooks.com, through where I learn about some great ways of making books with kids, and, I am inspired with Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord so I have started to do my own workshops with kids. First workshops were in our school library, than in city library and now finally in libraries and schools all around Croatia.

Kids make books in all kind of variety and forms. So far they have created a books about love, animals, feelings. Also books have different forms like: ties, bags, hearts, houses, leafage. Kids often make their own stories and illustrations and have great fun while making their own books.

Thank you Zoran!
