I am having a (temporary I am sure) break from fabric to obsess over paper and books. Well, no, not really - I put fabric pages around each signature of paper pages in my latest journal today:
However, I have discovered a few things I thought you might like links to. In no particular order:
Pick and mix paper and car boxes from PaperMill shop - I visited the shop at the factory today wher I saw the paper being made and came away with 4 boxes and three sets of alphabet stamps ( sale - 99p each!)
Sheets of paper with seeds embedded so you can plant them after they have been used
Sheep poo paper
Blood on paper. Not as yucky as it sounds ( although I had a near miss with a bookmakers awl last night!) This is an exhibition of artist books at the V&A museum in London. Links give you a video, and pictures if you can't make it in person and this list of links to artist book pages.
Also interviews and ohter rescources- more than I have had time to explore!
A collection of minature book bindings which I get to go to at the John Rylands library in Manchester on Saturday. The catalogue from a previous exhibit of this collection retails for 475 on Amazon but is available online here.
A paper related bookshop from paper sellers - paper making, sketchbooks, travel, book arts etc.
Online classes in making studio journals and mixed media techniques for journals
