The Books of Summer

Book 7:The blizzard book is made from a single strip of paper. The pages have pocket-like folds that can hold additional content. Hedi Kyle created the blizzard book. Instructions for this book can be found in The Penland Book of Handmade Books. The book pictured below is my dummy book I created to work out the details of my final version. I experimented with several different weights of vellum paper before settling on a medium weight paper. The thicker vellum was splitting after it was folded. Lessons learned. I’ll be posting photos of the final book soon.
