i took a bookbinding class at OCAD two summers ago and loved it.

that summer i bought so many different kinds of paper - especially the handmade kind.

my favourite was an apple blossom blend that showed the blossoms and bled a bit of blue colour into the sheet.

this book's paper was made in India and all the black parts are made of a raised velour type of material that makes it incredibly tactile.

i made so many books, but i've barely used any of them. my sketches can be broad and sweeping - taking up a lot of space.  i guess i don't like the idea of "wasting" my handmade books. because of this, my husband has started hoarding them for himself. i better start using them or he'll steal them all.
