Learning a new Bookbinding Stitch

This  bookbinding  stitch  is beautiful  and intricate  yet I am finding it to be a bit complicated.  I am determined to master the stitch  then use it to create  a new book.
I have 4 book ideas in my head i will be sketching out to figure out how they will be bound and made.  I will post more about it soon.

Today is crazy artistic mojo.

I am making many decisions about my work and how it will be presented at the exhibition.  I am  cutting,  hanging, measuring and arranging. 
My art is very nostalgic  yet using new pieces  made to look old.

* Happy 4th of July! *

Happy Independence day to all Americans  and a BIG thank you to our Military, current and veteran service people, that keep us safe and free in our country.

What is on my art desk today.

I have been sewing together the mono-printed pages of the artist books,  these  take time to punch the holes then hand stitch two pages together.

I have printed enough pages for six books, I'm hoping to have three done for the beginning of the show in the installation setting. I like the way the books look so far. The nostalgic image and the old style antiqued collage covers  will be an interesting combination. 

The art show will be setting up soon,  check back for the opening day and hours post.
