Wartime Log Update, a Spitfire Log and Edventures in Fredricton

You may recall from a post here in June that I was working on a Wartime Log. Here's a photo of the new binding. We scanned the original cover art and printed cloth for the new cover. If you missed it and want to know more, here's the link: 

Since then a Pilot's Log has come in from the family of a former Spitfire pilot. It needs to be scanned, and a few copies made. Entries range from "Yippee!!!" to "Excellent Bombing" to the brief poignant recording of a friend's death. 

A week in Fredericton, NB teaching a bookbinding sampler. Projects ranged from a package of Japanese bindings, a Medieval style binding, a box and a Moleskine.

The photo below is from a one day workshop creating a Medieval style journal with a flexible leather cover.

Medieval Journal Workshop in Haliburton, July 6, 2013

Here are some of the results of the Medieval Journal class I taught for the Haliburton School of the Arts last weekend. Paper by Papeterie Saint Armand of Montreal. The book featured exposed, long and link stitch sewing and a closure which employed a purpose built button made from leather and vellum.
