fabric, continued

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?!

Beautiful book Lori. Aren't you glad you are using that great Italian Velata!
Keep it up! Maybe post it on Etsy?
