|Exciting New Books vs.|
|Plain and Traditional Books|
You may not know this, but I'm also a bookbinder. I sew the paper together, attach it to a cover and all that jazz. It's a lot of fun and I can custom make my own calendars, journals, and sketchbooks. The only downside is the very boring, but very sturdy book cloth that traditionally covers books.
Well, I've found a imported japanese cotton that is heavy enough to cover my books, but not as heavy as most home decor fabric. It has a funky, fun print and I'm excited to see how it holds up. The next project will be to make removable book covers with the laminated fabrics.
