Book Arts Guild of Vermont workshop: Online Resources for the Book Arts
Last Wednesday, I did a presentation for the Book Arts Guild of Vermont on online resources for the book arts.
I was delighted to have an enthusiastic crowd of 15 – way more than I anticipated. I kinda thought folks would stay away because let’s face it – computers are mostly unsexy.
Making stuff – now that’s sexy.
I tried to give an overview of what’s out there – blogs, image galleries, forums, videos, tutorials – you name it. If I had more time, I could easily expand the presentation from two hours to, oh, about a gazillion.
My favorite part of the presentation was when folks asked questions that led us to other websites. I’m always happy to go further down the rabbit hole.
I gave a resource booklet to everyone who came to the presentation – the pages were bound using a pamphlet stitch. You can download the booklet by clicking on the following link: Online Resources for Book Artists. The pages are formatted for binding – just fold the two pages in half, nest them, and you’re good to go!
I’d like to give credit to the wonderful photographer behind the booklet cover image – my hubby. The model is Preston, my book press (and he’s taken).
