Just wanted to finally post my Dada Coloring Books.  Check the thread to see where I am coming from.
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=194153.0
I made 50 of these beauts over the course of 3 plus years.  Each one is seventy pages.
The Dada Coloring Books are meant to be intellectual coloring books.  The surface on each page is textured yet flat from all the different papers and because all surfaces are paper and paper only every square inch can accept media including pen, pencil, watercolor, etc.  The binding style is case bound hollow back traditionalesque.
What do you think?

I'm impressed! And, after all of that work, it's nice to know that you encourage folks to color on the pages Wink

Really awesome!  But pardon my ignorance.... what does DADA mean?  I thought at first it was a Harry Potter reference, but it doesn't seem to be.  And what do you mean by coloring books?  People can just color anything they want on top of the words...??

I am overwhelmed at the size of this project!They look so perfectly bound too! I just got the book bug in me this week. I'm making a few with regular printer paper, the colored stuff. I just posted the first one. Anyway, I am finding out how both fun and tedious this is. But it is the perfect new hobby, after way too many years sewing! I really hope to learn more about the way you did your bindings. If you read my post, I cheated with the sewing machine, but I'm not trying to preserve antique traditions, just want to make it work. I got that idea from a little black and white composition book. What do you think about that? It's doing the covers in different mediums that I'm really interested in.
  By the way, I love the pic of you and the baby. Is he walking now, trying to help out?
