The top shelf is a display of several of the journals that will be given to each of the authors participating in the Children's Author Festival that begins Oct. 20. The books are vintage children's titles that were found at yard sales and second hand stores. At the August workshop we bound blank pages into the covers with Dolores' "bow tie" stitch and then added some illustrations and/or text from the book for added interest. This is NORBAG's contribution to show support for the Author Festival.
On the other shelves are examples of some of the very different but beautiful books that we make. There are informative books, illustrated books, big books, little books, collaged books, blank books, a book with some pop-ups, and a wonderful collaborative tunnel book made by Simona and friends. Members all have different interests besides bookmaking that we can incorporate into our books—these photos provide a number of examples.
