Book artists on Twitter, part 2

twitterigamiAs promised, here is a follow-up to my first post about book artists on Twitter. In case you’re wondering how I find these folks, most are via recommendations from others (thank you #followfriday).

I also use a service called Twilert to notify me when someone tweets using any of the following words/phrases:

  • bookbinding
  • handmade book
  • handmade journal

I receive a daily report of these tweets via Email (well, I did before Twilert went kablooey). Pre-kablooey, I found the service quite useful and I was able to discover some very interesting folks.

And now – on with the list!

Note: I’m interested in book artists of all skill levels and the people I follow on Twitter represent that variety.

The first link will take you to the person’s Twitter feed and the second link will take you to his or her website, blog, or Etsy shop.


Yet another note: Many thanks to Paddy Donnelly for generously sharing his rocking origami Twitter image, a.k.a. Twittergami. And yes, you can follow Paddy on Twitter.

If you know of any I’ve missed, feel free to pass them along. I have a feeling that there’s going to be a part 3 in my future…

I feel such a luddite. I just don’t get the whole twitter thing. I need to find someone who can talk to me face to face so I can see what it entails. I already feel swamped by Facebook and my blog, not to mention email and my mobile phone. I look at the tweets on people’s blogs and I just wonder why?

I signed up for Twitter in June 2008 and didn’t really start “getting it” until March of this year. Sometimes it just takes time to figure out if something is for you.

Simply put, Twitter is a tool. If a tool doesn’t solve a need you have, then there’s no need for you to use it. You don’t have to apologize for it either. πŸ™‚

I’d be happy to talk to you more about it, if you’d like.

You follow me, @evilrooster — we’ve even talked once or twice. Binding websites, both sadly out of date at the moment: http://www.evilrooster.com (bindings I’ve sold) and http://bookweb.sunpig.com (instructional site, plus early bindings)

So sorry for the omission – sadly, you’re not the first. I have added you to the list.

Ah, thanks for adding me! Being on this list makes me feel slightly more legit as a bookbinder… slightly!

By elissa - 27 August 2009 Reply

I’m pretty sure you’re a legitimate bookbinder without my list. πŸ™‚

Hey, no problem. Thanks for the collection of resources, both here and on your twitter stream.
