The Travelling Bookbinder

We’d like to introduce you to The Travelling Bookbinder. Rachel Hazell is an imaginative and generous bookbinder, teacher and lover of papery, wordy things. Her book, Bound, is a beautiful collection of book-making projects. They are all easily manageable. Each book form suggests different ideas for writing and art work. 

The Travelling Bookbinder has a regular newsletter for those who sign up. It just so happened that in this month’s letter, Rachel shows how to make a simple artist’s book using a page from a discarded book. She uses the blackout technique to create a new text from the old one. We thought you might like to make one yourself.
