Late Night Bookbinding

art, bookbinding, bookmaking, classes, work in progress

It’s nearly midnight and I’m alone and bored in my hotel room here in Forest Grove, waiting for the next day of the Focus on Book Arts Conference. With nothing for company besides the History Channel, free wifi, and the dregs of the Slurpee I had for dinner, I figured that it would only be appropriate to bind a book.

I am a creature of scraps.
