I began my book passion journey in 1998 and had a wonderful mentor in Susan Joy Share after my first general Japanese bound book for a college photography class; all of my books at that time were paper journals with varying techniques in binding, from this modified basic method to more difficult patterns.
The "Mary Lacebook" is my first journey with the use of fabric and the collaborative was made up of five fabulous artists - and, myself!
A couple of notations: I wanted three buttons per signature, however one signature has only two buttons and was of lighter weight so it worked out. I punched my outside spine holes with a Japanese screw punch; an eyelet punch will work just as well.
Thanks for your interest. Hope this helps with questions; please know you are welcome to Email me for further details if you wish.
