I am currently attending a bookmaking course with artist Lucy May Schofield. Here are a few of her creations. I am quietly obsessed with books, I love the tactility of them and the smell, you may have even spotted me in second hand book stores giving them a good sniff. My art is based in narrative and story-tellingthis in mind coupled with my love of books it was not surprising that I would venture into the realm of artists books. During this 8 week course in addition to learning new binding skills I have a special focus, a gift I am making for a loved one, but I can't share the details with you - it would spoil the surprse!
I will be able to show my other small book projects. This course is not the first time I have made artist books. Here are some of my earlier projects.
