School Days

September 14th, 2022

When I was in graduate school in the 90s, I went junking with a fellow artist. I purchased a couple of realms of kids’ paper for practicing handwriting.

I used several sheets to make signatures to try a new book format. Bamboo yarn was used to tie the signatures together.

The front and back covers were made of blank flash cards.

A band of the flash card paper was used to secure the book. Rather than glue or stitchwork, I used a round head fastener.

I wrote and erased School Days on the cover.

Text

Yep, that is a Dixon Beginners pencil.

Macrame knots were used to bind the tails together.

I learned three things making this little book: a new binding technique, addition of macrame, and how to make a wrap closure.
