Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Blank books have been used for centuries as diaries, artistic notebooks, and places to stash memorabilia. This guide encourages those who hesitate to start in on the pristine pages of a nicely bound blank book. Teacher and author Diehn (Simple Printmaking) describes art supplies for printing and decorating pages, techniques for customizing the physical book, and sample layouts for designing pages. Self-expression is all, neatness doesn't really count, and the more things done by hand the better. The lively and interesting illustrations make this a good selection for public library collections.
