Happy WOYWW to you, dear friends! Today I’d like to share a book that I recently received from my friend, fellow blogger and author Cym Lowell. The book is called 500 Handmade Books – Volume 2 and was compiled by Julie Chen (the book artist, not the television personality!)
500 Handmade Books, Volume 2 contains an amazing collection of “provocative and visually dynamic works” that range from the traditional to the experimental to the boundary-pushing.
Aside from the Introduction, there isn’t really anything to read in this book – there is just page after page of stunning photographs of one incredible book after another!
Books that unfold, unfurl and flip.
Books that range from simple in style to earthy and interesting to bold and beautiful.
Books that incorporate every object imaginable into their design: wasp nest, glass, metal, twigs, and “found” objects of all types!
If you are a paper crafter, mixed media artist, or altered book lover, you may want to have a hankie nearby to collect the drool as you peruse this book!
For more photos – or to add this beauty to your wish list – visit 500 Handmade Books, Volume 2 on Amazon!
Hope you have a fabulous week!
