Serendipitous Occurance

Short for – how lucky can I get?

I’ve been agonizing over making books with no content. I follow a few book maker’s websites with envy – not only are their covers a work of art, so is the content.

Yesterday, thru blog-world, I met Annie Bodelier from the Netherlands http://anniebodelier.blogspot.com/. I’m a visual person and while I don’t understand the language, I certainly understand her work. She has a flair for content (if you have a couple of minutes go to Annie’s flikr site – you’ll be glad you did) and has motivated me to give it a try.

We both follow Alisa Golden’s blog http://makinghandmadebooks.blogspot.com. Alisa’s books “Making Handmade Books” and “Painted Paper” are incredible. They’re the kind of books you’ll turn to over and over again and discover something new and inspiring. I highly recommend them.

I repurposed a vinyl clothing store banner and a spiral paper sample book into a clay reference book – I’ll post pictures tomorrow.

All the best,
Janet
