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.
