Making 365 Handmade Books in 365 Days

Once I got started I couldn't stop . . . even though some days I didn't think I would finish.
Measuring and cutting each board
Whenever I had an extra moment, I would hand cut more boards.  This was usually around 2am.
some of my tools for making books
There was never any time to rest with this project, and I used every household and art tool to make each book into something special.
Art store- finding inspiration and supplies
I did a lot of experimentation before I developed a style that offered the texture, durability and aesthetics that I liked.
Covers of books created in April 2015
Each book tells a different story and offers a different view.
