Long-stitch Bookbinding Workshop

Thanks to Launch Pad Gallery in Yokohama, Japan, I have the opportunity to teach a fun bookbinding workshop!

On Sun, Sept 30 from 2 – 5PM I’ll be at the gallery with all the materials necessary for visitors to begin creating their own small art books. I found the long-stitch bookbinding technique to be beautifully decorative, very functional, and reasonably easy to complete. Each of my map paged journals were constructed using the long-stitch bookbinding design.

There is no charge for this workshop,

”Reading Between the Lines” Book Arts Exhibition is a wonderful collaborative show combining artists from St Helens, England and those of us in Art Byte Critique in the Tokyo Bay area. Come see the amazing variety of artbooks and stay for the workshop!

Looking forward to seeing you on the 30th!

Now w/Art Books! The Honolulu Printmakers Show…

Starting this Friday, Nov 25, Impressions16 will open 10 -4 at Honolulu Museum of Art School.

This year is unique in that Art Books are now part of the show!

I’ll have a great selection of my Travel Journals available. Part of my Migration/Navigation series, I’ve used old flight maps from around the world as inspiration for the Art Books with embroidered themes.

A Booth at the Tokyo Art Book Fair 2014

My first book fair and, according to Zine’s Mate, it is the largest in Asia! My boothmates definitely agree that it’s huge, the amount of art books, zines, paper supplies, printers, and all the accessories seems to cover acres of booths.

TABF Booth

Tokyo Art Byte Critique’s Booth No. H-05 has been enjoying the amazing flood of creativity that has poured into the Gaien Campus. Here’s a look at the write-up for our group in the book fair catalog:

My favorite find so far is an adorable cat mamebon:

Neko Mamebon

 

Measuring a mere 4 cm this little book has a fat felted tail and a full story complete with illustrations. Created by a student at the Nagoya University of Arts for a Media Communication Design class. You’ll find them at Booth No. D-04 but at only 500 yen each they will go quickly!!

Across from our booth is the enthusiastic Knuckles & Notch from Singapore, sharing a table with another art book designer all the way from NYC:
