bookbinding

This 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch hardbound double Japanese Pamphlet was made with four goals in mind. I was teaching a photocopier books class at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and wanted to show students an additional sample (this one in color), using the computer instead of the copier.

Additionally I wanted to combine several of my journal sketches into one artist's book. And finally I wanted to create a gift for a sketching friend, to commemorate the many times she has waited while I sketch birds.

The fourth goal was that I had to be able to finish it in an evening: from culling illustrations from my journals, formatting pages, setting text, printing, and to binding. It was made with materials on hand. It is an edition of two.

The title of the book is "A Party of Birds: Without a Cassowary." The title is a play on the term "a party of cassowaries," which is what a flock of them is called. I have always enjoyed this very festive description. Alas, there are no sketches of cassowaries in my recent journals. I hope to return to Australia someday and remedy this.
