Buttonhole is an age old, simple sewing stitch, and it adds a wonderfully decorative element to this hard cover book with an open spine. The non-adhesive binding is easy for beginning book artists to learn, and is a fun addition to the repertoire of more experienced bookmakers. We love the interplay between the colored thread of the binding and the patterned paper used for the covers. Go for something wild if you want! The exposed signatures are fun to decorate as well. The end result is a beautiful blank journal worth giving as a special gift or filling with your own words. Cost includes most materials, please see the materials list.
Brenda Gallagher is a graphic designer, illustrator, and artist living in Niwot, Colorado. She began binding books in 1999, and it changed her life forever! Since then, she’s studied with many renowned book artists. Brenda is a student at the American Academy of Bookbinding in Telluride, an internationally known, degree-oriented bookbinding and conservation school that is part of the Ah Haa School for the Arts. Her field of study is the art of fine leather binding. Brenda is the Vice President of the Book Arts League in Boulder, where she teaches bookbinding classes and studies letterpress printing.
