Book Arts Tuesday-Book-Play Workshop
I had a wonderful time at the Book-Play workshop last week at the Amherst Town Library in Amherst, NH. It was a lively and creative group. Play is not just for children. It's amazing what can be accomplished in an hour and a half with recycled paper. All the books are hot dog booklets.
One enterprising gentleman amazed us all. He went to the library computer, downloaded photos from his website, arranged them in powerpoint, and printed the page. The photos weren't all arranged in the proper direction but I'm sure he'll get it right when he has more time at home.
I provide garden catalogs for scrap paper but they are also a great source for imagery for the book. And especially welcome at the end of this long winter when we are all crazy for spring.
Tiny books made from paper found in the collage box inside of a slightly larger book made from recycled paper. So little and sweet.
I love when people do things I haven't thought of like cut into the shapes
and using a used glue stick lid to hold up a book.
