This miniature double accordion book was part of the WIVLA “Inspired By Her Quote” show at the Houston Downtown Library. All of the art was inspired by a quote from a woman. The show was up from March 1st to the 31st in celebration of Women’s History Month.

Tonight was the December Holiday Book Swap at the Houston Book Arts Guild. The theme was “ten” since it is the 10th anniversary of the guild. My contribution to the swap was a triangle accordion book with ten zentangle triangles.
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!
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!
