It’s been a very busy few weeks, but last weekend I spent a lovely Saturday morning with Sussex Book Arts Collective running a workshop making Star Books. This is a structure I love to make myself, and one which I’ve had included in an exhibition. My version was made from postcards, flyers, maps etc that I collected during a student trip to Amsterdam. (What better way to use the stash I’d collected!) Following a couple of great eBay wins I had a collection of playing cards and old postcards, which were put to great use along with a selection of coloured card and items brought in by participants.
Here are a selection of the wonderful books from the day:
