A mini post to give you a taster of my ‘theory booklet’ that is currently in production. Having worked through pagination complications (a bit of a mouthful) printing got under way, and with the purchase of more paper tomorrow, it should be ready to bind very soon.
To link with the hand sewn binding technique, I have also begun making my own tassels to hang from the ends of the thread and to decorate the outside spine of the booklet. These are really quick and easy to make, and the range of coloured embroidery thread available make it addictive, the variety of colour combinations seem endless.
Hopefully the finished article will be professional, tactile and yet still personal at the same time – an artwork in its own right maybe?
