Sunday November 7, 2010 Petite Enchantments









This is my first completed project. I have always been interested in books, and thru the years have become more and more interested in artist's books. So I have decided to become a creator of artist's books. The tiny bookcase is a found object. I have painted it with five coats of buttermilk paint, the final coat was a light cream. I will put a piece of glass into the door of the bookcase, and there will be a final finish on the cabinet. At first I planned 20 books, but decided I liked it not so full, but more casual. I chose this as my first project, so I could learn something about book binding. I have several projects planned, and will post them as they are finished.

I love the book binding with what look like vintage children's books. A beautiful project. I would love to know more about how you bound them!
