Days of Works and Books

I have a friend – a very good photographer – who used to make her own photo books. She bind the books with the Japanese and Leporello (often called concertina) binding.

I was astonished with the results of her books. But I never had the patience to afford to do the job.

And all at once, we were in the middle of the lockdown.

One day I saw the possibility to participate from home, on a book making course run by the photographer Alex Hare -by the way a very good photographer, as you can see on his incredible picture of Ceapabhal, the westernmost summit of Harris island, on the the Outer Hebrides-.

The day of the workshop, the six participants were nearly 6 hours learning the use of paper, bone folder, Stanley knife, glue, an so on.

The result? You can see it yourself. I have to say I’m very happy with the result. I’m working on my second photo book!
