new books at last and a pond of lotus
Since I had the class happening and my sister had expressed interest in buying one of my books for a friend I thought I'd better make a few. I have been making quite a bit of this black and white paper, some for the book I am making for the Bairnsdale exhibition and some for book covers. Thanks to Tricia for the black pulp which is recycled black card and the white is a mix of mount board and cotton fabric beaten in the valley beater out at Bundoora when I was on duty at the end of January. The red is some hanji which came from Korea for an IAPMA project involving making items to sell at the next Wonju Hanji festival, I will be sending one of these books plus a few smaller ones, I made as demos in yesterday's class(Oriental binding).
Tasmanian artist, sorry I can't remember her name ( I found out it is Te Willans) but you can buy her buttons from 'Open Drawer' the new textile shop in Hartwell.
