yesterday i was playing with fabric, and made some bookcloth by fusing mulberry paper to the back of the fabric. here is a book that i finished, using the bookcloth that i made. inside, there are 60 pages of hand-torn italian velata paper and they are stitched to the book spine using a long-stitch variation and waxed linen thread. for decoration, i used some gaffer tape i had (glad to finally find a use for that!) and adhered it around the spine. this was fun to do...a little time consuming, but what isn't?!
