Making a book full of gods

handmade pocket frame book
I'm working on a series of pop-up collages, and I wanted to find a way to bind them together. I consulted the world's best bookbinding book, Making Handmade Books, and found something called the "pocket frame" book. I decided to try making one. 

It was supposed to be just for practice, something to recycle when I finished. Instead, I got carried away.

Pop go the numbers -- a beginner's accordion book

Popup accordion book
I am enchanted by popup books. Recently I discovered artist Helen Hiebert and her book Playing with Popups. I'm working my way through the book's projects. After learning to make an accordion popup book, I got ambitious and designed my own.

Radiant Womanhood handmade book


Handmade book by Claudia Mazzie-Ballheim
Here's a small book I made this week in my collage workshop. It started as one single large piece of watercolor paper. It ended up as a feminist-manifesto with a "dos-a-dos" structure. 

I'm happy with the way it turned out. I call it "Radiant Womanhood" after one of the spreads.
