So I fell off the grid for a while and didn’t even share photos for a few months. An extremely common side effect of depression that comes and goes, so let’s not dwell upon it. Spring is around the corner, and the added number of daylight hours, among other things, has lifted my spirits enough to have me back in the game and binding books. The winter months were reserved for poetry related duties and exultations, but maybe now I’m ready to weave in some paper explorations as well.
I wanted to start with some very basic bookbinding project so as not to demand too much from myself right away, just do the meditative basic work, and do it well. And with pleasure. A pleasure it was.
The first books were small landscape format notebooks and they were quickly followed by larger books twice their size. You can now find both types in the Paperiaarre shop.
What next? Not sure at all. Maybe you have a suggestion or two?
