Book Arts Tuesday-Stick Book Workshop
We had a wonderful evening a couple of weeks ago at the Newburyport Public Library celebrating autumn by making books with sticks for the binding. We met in the Children's Program Room which is a cozy space and there was a particularly good feeling of connection and camaraderie within the assembled group.
I took screen shots from directions for the binding of the South Common Haiku Project that I did with my friend Paul Marion. They are different in the sense that the pages were stacked separately but I think they get the point across. At the workshop we folded the pages together like a traditional Western signature and punched the holes.
Here are some photos from the workshop:
Why not celebrate the season with stick books of your own?
