Expressive Handmade Booksby Alisa Golden
An increasingly popular craft trend receives awe-inspiring treatment by a major artist. Alisa Golden (Creating Handmade Books) has created a spectacular guide sure to enlighten both beginners and more advanced students. She provides invaluable instruction on structure—which is where newcomers will focus their energies first—as well as design and content, for those who already have some experience. From measuring and scoring to folding and cutting, from tools for bookbinding to useful media for writing and image-making, there’s a rich store of information on the craft—and a wonderfully wide range of projects, too. Make accordion and flag books, including miniature volumes; side bindings, with cross stitching or laced edges; sewn signatures; portfolios; pop-ups; and other creative styles.

I have many craft books in my library. I flip through the pages, admiring the projects and the work that goes into them. But this book grabbed me and I just had to try out some of the projects. I show off the books I've made. This book would have received a perfect score except for chapter 5 (Folds and Twists) Books with Multiple Paths. This section uses Origami to create the pages. Although it was fun, I got lost a couple of times and had to figure it out myself. But I did figure it out and the results were very cute. All of the projects are practical and fun. Many of the projects can be completed within a hour or two. So get this book and have some fun. It is in my permanent library.
