Double Accordion Book

This is a double accordion book I recently completed.  It was just accepted to 23 Sandy Gallery’s show titled “Built”.  The book is created using Derwent Inktense Pencils .  These pencils are applied in the same way as a colored pencil and can remain dry but water can also be added to blend the ink making it permanent.  The brick background paper was created by carving a foam stamp with a brick pattern and stamping it on the paper before cutting it.

Inspired by Her Quote

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.


Books of Summer

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!
