Blizzard book with prayer cards

Summer has ended and the bookmaking will slow down. I’m posting the finished products of two previous books I was working on. The first one is a blizzard Book based on a design by Hedi Kyle. The second one is a double accordion structure. Peter and Donna Thomas have written a great book called More Making Books By Hand. It contains instructions for many miniature books and alternative book structures. Enjoy!

The Books of Summer

Book 8: this week’s book is still in the making but the structure is mostly finished. It is a double accordion book. Peter and Donna Thomas have written a fantastic book with instructions for many book structures. Their book is titled More Making Books By Hand. This is the second book I have made following instructions in their book. The instructions for “Apple Tree Lane”, a flap book are also in their book. I’ll be posting the finished product soon!
