Last Thursday I taught a handmade cards and books workshop here in the Studio, just in time for the holidays! We discussed several bookmaking methods including accordion folds, pamphlet stitching, Japanese stab binding, and non-traditional techniques.
In addition to their stack of books, participants created handmade cards, envelopes and a colorful set of papers for future projects.
Below are a few books to help inspire you to create handmade books and cards this holiday season!
