So I sewed a few more books from scraps of paper, vellum and book covers made from the brown paper I cover the tables in the studio.

I also finally worked up the nerve to finish my final simplified binding, left over from PBI. I wanted to add veneer wooden covers, I am not completely happy with it yet, but maybe I can resolve it tomorrow after it dries under weights tonight.

The idea is there for the new work, I can feel it. Hope the muse is about tomorrow!!
