    Bound by the word

    In yesterday’s post I mentioned that this would be an indoors bookmaking weekend for me, especially with temperatures soaring in the 90s to the above 100-degree mark. I took a short break from cutting, gluing, pressing and binding to browse through the wonderful world of handmade books on Etsy. I was amazed at the variety of materials used. Can you identify these materials, techniques or styles in the treasury shown below this list? fabric burlap paper wood steampunk leather mixed media polymer clay glass mosaic tiles Coptic stitch embroidery spiral bound 3-D zipper yo-yo flower casebound felt [sh-etsy-treasury treasury=”NjIyMjQyNHwyNzIyMzY2MzQ1″ size=”large” columns=”4″ display=”complete”] © 2013 Judy Nolan.
