Paul,

I only had time to glance quickly at your site, but it looks wonderful. Did you post a comment like the one you left here on the Book Arts List? If not, you definitely should. In addition, you should contact Peter Verheyen about getting your site listed as a resource on the Book Arts Web.  (http://www.philobiblon.com)

For some reason, the photos after the first post are not coming up in my browser (Firefox). I thought the problem might be that I have Ghostery blocking the trackers, but when I disabled it, I still couldn't see the pictures. It could be because of some other browser add-on I have, so this is my problem. But you may want to ask some other people to check the site with Firefox to see if they are having problems too.

Good luck, and thanks for you & your grandfather for your helpful work.

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:http://www.ibookbinding.com

We hope you like it.

Thanks,
Paul

‘The Story of Sunderland’ is a community project that  celebrates the significant relationship that the area’s residents have with Benedict Biscop, who in 674 AD established the monastery of Wearmouth-Jarrow at the mouth of the Wear, the very site where the National Glass Centre now stands.  Currently on display on their balcony gallery is a series of hand made books made by a group of adutls new to print and bookbinding.  The work responds to the historical significance of the area and celebrates the contribution made by both Biscop & Bede. 

I worked with this group for 10 weeks and have been absolutely amazed at the depth and clarity of their skills and ideas. If you are in the area, why not check out the work and find out more about Biscop & Bede.

The children I teach have produced some extraordinary bookart. As collaborative journals, altered books and the straight up joy of purposefully making a book from start to finish, they continue to startle and inspire me. I wonder what the ethical considerations of posting pictures of their work would be?

I've been using books and bookish structures for years now in schools and libraries, exhibiting my books in the display area and teaching children about the joy of books in ways where they feel ownership by assisting them in making the content theirs; where the narrative is image or text or blank for future use. there are very few behavioural problems in these classes. it's a pleasure!
