Handmade books using many traditional and modern techniques are now on display in the kiosk at the Humboldt County Library. Various kinds of book bindings such as single and double needle Coptic, Japanese stab binding, French Link, Secret Belgian, Slinky, and Long Stitch are included. There are small folded books containing pages of poetry, a multi-page pop-up book, and several Accordion variations including one with decorative lacing on the fore edges of each page. You will also find examples of surface designed cover papers, original lino-cut reduction prints, eco-dyed, watercolor, and paste papers. It's an extravaganza of handmade books by members of the North Redwoods Book Arts Guild.
