A Bookbinder’s Black Friday

Ah, the splendor of Black Friday.

This year I have decided to keep a low profile shopping-wise. After I bought all of that paper in Japan, I have no good reason to buy anything else for the rest of the year.

Instead, I will be spending my day completing a bunch of unfinished books that have been sitting in my studio for the past week. Then I’ll engage in the oh-so-fun tradition of Let’s Pack up the Van for a Craft Show.

For those of you inclined to shop today, there are a bunch of bookbinding-related online sales going on today (and through the weekend).

Rolls of bookcloth
