Book Arts was one of the most fun classes I took this year. There are so many book forms out there, and so many sewing methods. Tiny books are my favorite books to make, so throughout the semester I made tons of those.
The bat up there was for a found cover assignment. He’s holding an accordion fold book, and when you stretch out his arms the book opens up to reveal a starry galaxy.
On the right is a tiny bible. It has four short scriptures in it, and the pages were made to resemble illuminated manuscripts. The pages are made of gampii, and the cover is made of book board covered with vinyl. It got a little frustrating, but the result is nice. It has the feeling of a real bible.
