No matter how busy it is in the day with visits to nursing homes and organising the pack up of a lifetime of memories, there is still nighttime! I have managed to produce another 4 pages of Masters of War by Bob Dylan. Still enjoying it very much although I may have run out of ideas. Just have to see.
I am very excited about my new project. I have finished two drafts of the first four verses of Masters of War by Bob Dylan and I have ideas on presentation of the next four verses. I hope that the ideas keep coming. It has been good fun so far.
After spending a great deal of time with my mother-in-law, who needs a lot of attention having ended up in the hospital with a leg broken in three places, I had the pleasure of a lovely afternoon with Vicki and Chris making a Drum Leaf Bound Book. I was able to put all my cares away for the afternoon.
First up we played with spray paint to make the covers. These due in some part to the texture on the paper made beautiful covers. Then, under the expert tutoring of Vicki we made our Drum Leaf Book. It is only a small book measuring approx 11.5cm by 16cm.
This type of binding can be found documented in an article by Timothy Ely in Bonefolder Magazine. Alisa Golden also has a great step by step article in her blog from 2007.
I love this structure it is just great for calligraphy.
