bookbinding play

My dear friend Drora came to visit me not long ago for our four day annual art retreat here at my home.  Drora was fortunate enough to study with master bookbinder Tim Ely at FOBA in Oregon a few years ago.  We made these little gems. 

Tim Ely Books

It is a nifty structure, unlike any other book I've bound.  The process is addicting!  There are more steps in the process than I'm used to, so creating multiples was good practice and experience.
