hand made books

Oh heavens! Oh my! I can hardly believe a week has gone by. Oh wow, I just realized that rhymed. No really. I did. I just thought it would be fun to keep it. In case you were feeling neglected, I'm sorry. But this last week has been crazy busy! I finished making a logo and branding for a photographer friend of mine, started working on a wedding invitation, started working on another logo for this sweet new company that is about to launch and on top of it, homework. Don't worry though... my head won't explode. I've got it all under control. I think.
It's Thirsty Thursday again! In honor of my book arts class I thought I would highlight a book artist who's style I love.
Erin Zamrzla or more commonly known as erinzam, is a talented artist who uses recycled materials to create her hand constructed books. I love all the different shapes and sizes along with variety of materials used. If you are interested in purchasing one, check out the etsy shop.
This classic baseball card book is a prime example of unique materials. I love how even the spine is designed to look like baseball stitching. I can't wait to discover my own recycled materials for bookbinding.
