Star tunnel book demonstration at Word Festival

I gave a star tunnel book demonstration at Word Festival in Vancouver.

Start book demo at Word Vancouver

I gave a demonstration on how to make a star book at Word, a literary festival that took place at the Vancouver Public Library today.

I started by sharing examples of star books. Then I sowed a book and assembled the pages into a star book.

The theme of my book was the Word festival. I used the festival guide to pick the colour of the book and Imade a collage using pictures and extracts from the program.

I really enjoyed sharing the joys of bookbinding during this one hour demo at the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG) table.

Starbook with cherry blossom haiku

I created this starbook featuring winners from the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival Haiku Invitational winners.

Each card was designed by VCBF with the purpose of promoting the winners. I downloaded the cards from the @OfficialVCBF twitter page.

This starbook will be donated to Haiku Canada to be auctioned during the annual conference this week-end.

Word Vancouver

I presented a bookmaking workshop at Word Vancouver between 3-4pm at the table of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild.

Participants decorated their book using the logo of the festival.  The book that says “Family Fun” really sums up the experience at this wonderfully literary festival.

If you missed the workshop, check out my tutorial.
