Synopses & Reviews
These books are extraordinary works of art. Starting with basic concertina or accordion folds, every project builds on the one before and introduces new skills. Star tunnel volumes feature deep panels or star's arms: use each one for a different scene in a story. Bind two signatures together with a pamphlet stitch, make an explosion page, add embossing, or even combine techniques. Creative ideas offer inspiration for using the finished work, from botanical to specimen books. Fabulous gallery photos showcase sensational ways that artists are stretching the boundaries...so you can, too.
“LaPlantz has created another whammo release.”—RubberStampMadness.
“More than 25 patterns...focus on seven different types of books, from a simple...accordion fold to the complicated recessed skewer binding. Everything is here...as well as explanations of such techniques as embossing.”—Booklist.
