The second book I made at a Chapter II workshop with Margo Klass was the buttonhole book. I really enjoyed making this structure and made a second one at home. I bought more large sheets of toned paper so I can make more.
Decorative papers, painted with acrylics and walnut ink
The cut into the spine, glued. Getting ready to reinforce at top and bottom with small squares of bookcloth.
Completed book showing buttonhole stitching on spine
Interior view showing decorative and plain guard sheets, and gray toned text sheets
The second book uses striped paper for the cover and blue painted decorative papers. I used Rosemary’s embossing powder to add some interest to the interior.
