Hello everybody and thank you for accepting me into your community.

Over the past few months myself and my recently retired grandfather have started to put together a dedicated bookbinding tutorial/instructional website to help others out there who are interested in bookbinding and book related arts. I take care of the site design and tech. part of it whilst my grandfather uses his experience to write the content.

We would welcome any feedback or suggestions you might have on the site as a whole. Also, if there are any particular topics that anyone might enjoy reading about, please let me know and I'll pass onto my grandfather to get writing! He has a strong passion for book binding and has over 40+ years of experience in the trade, if anybody has any questions then please ask away, he's a kind old fellow that loves to help others.

The website is called iBookBinding and the address is:

We hope you like it.

Dear friends, In April, my plan is to launch The Australian Book Arts Journal for book artists, printmakers, calligraphers and writers! The theme for the first issue is Beginnings. If you have any article or story that you think might make an impact, a review of a book, a review with pics of an exhibition, a technique article or tutorial with images, please contact me at the journal is exclusively Australian content. I am most excited about publishing this quarterly journal and hope you will see it as a vehicle for your work - besides, there is nothing like a book in the hand!
