...so i got really into bookbinding for awhile and here is some of the stuff i came up with.  i'll probably give most of them away as gifts

this is covered with canvas paper that i painted with acrylics




coptic bound with design painted w/ wallpaper paste and tempera






you can't tell from the picture but it's covered with gold paper




i haven't taken pictures of all of them yet, but i'll get around to it

Your books look great, congrats, I have a book I need to rebind, and would love to try making my own, you've given me confidence to try.
