Acorns are raining down and inspired the contents for this little book. I got the idea from At Home with Handmade Books, by Erin Zemrzla. I showed a little sneak peak of it here. This would be a good book for beginning bookbinders who are interested in Japanese forms. I've been playing with the ideas in it.
I'm very familiar with Japanese bookbinding so there is nothing particularly new here for me. But it is presented with a nice modern twist.
The materials I used ... coin envelopes, found papers, scrapbooking paper, paste paper, big circle punch, inks, alphabet stamps, cotton tape, washi tape, my handcarved acorn stamp, markers. I slid the small pieces of paste paper inside the envelopes and will use this little journal for writing about simplifying my life.
There is so much packed into an acorn. It's a lovely symbol of strength in a streamlined package.
