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.

I’ll have a great selection of my map paged Travel Journals available. The reverse of each map page is a plain white page for more notes.

Tokyo Art Book Fair Preparations

Our group, Tokyo Art Byte Critique was accepted into the Zine’s Mate Tokyo Art Book Fair to be held Fri, Sept 19 – Sun, Sept 21. So we have jumped into high gear to create amazing book art work for you to stop by and enjoy!

Yesterday, I got together with fellow Tokyo Art Byte Critique member Lori of The Spendy Pencil and while she made photo choices to include in her works, I chose to bind my map-paged Travel Journals with more pages than originally planned. From 24 pages now up to 40 pages per book for a total of 80 if you choose to use both sides of each page!

Fellow member Lyle Nisenholz has completed another amazing book of his original drawings which flow from one page to another through creative cutouts and and folds on the pages. Enjoy the Bonobo Book video:

A couple of us will be getting together again next week Thursday for another Book Art Assembling  Party to keep pushing each other to offer our best possible art books at the Tokyo Art Book Fair! Check back to see our progress each week and hope to see you at our booth next month!
