RED, WHITE, & VALENTINES

North Redwoods Book Arts Guild members both past and present have created books and cards to celebrate Valentine's Day and to be creative using a red and white theme. Many interesting items are now on display in the kiosk at the Humboldt County Library in Eureka. Included are: a whirligig spiral book with words of love, art papers and stamps; book pages fashioned into a flowered bracelet; a red book with woven binding and lots of beads; a wrap and closure book with collected quotations; a red and gold accordion book of sentiments in calligraphy; an embroidered felt pin based on a 1970's Vogue pattern on a cut-out card with red embroidery; and an Abecedaries of Dog book with original drawings by one NORBAG member, assembled by another member using a third member's instructions. Abecedary books are alphabet books. "They're the A is for apple and B is for bear books" as defined by Shereen LaPlantz in her book, The Art & Craft of Handmade Books. Be sure to check out this display if you're in the Eureka area.
