Hand made artist's books

Last night I spent my time cutting out the covers for some hand made books I want to have ready for the opening of 'Dirty Linen'. The little  book pictured is only 13 x 14 cm in size. It is called 'Little Monas' - (Mona Lisas) and it only has about six pages.

You can see how I have constructed the covers.  I have used embossed wallpaper. Once the cover is dry I will fold and paste down the edges and cover what's left with a heavy marbled paper.

Make two covers,  arrange torn prints in order, produce title page.  Use a punch to make holes for ribbon.
'Bingo'!!  You have a hand made artists book!
