Christmas 2017



Our Christmas meeting was enjoyable as always, with some seriously yummy food to share. Maybe food and making items out of white card is not the best combination, but we managed. We welcomed Sue Hewitt, new to us but not to book making.

We had the opportunity to see the bound map book collaborative project, and Sue Maloney volunteered to do the calligraphy for the cover. Those of us who had made paper cut books shared them, and we also caught up with some matchbox books. Lots of thought and originality - Frances recommends camp coffee rather than granules when ageing paper for books. We also discussed next year’s draft programme, which has now been slightly amended to take account of availability, and talked about our various commitments next year, which include Croxteth Park gardens and possibly Endeavour exhibitions, the Liverpool Book Art exhibition and Fair. Sue reminded us that the closing date for entry is not far off, so Marilyn will put together a sketchy combined entry from NWBA and we’ll see if we are accepted.


We finished by making white card paper houses and lit them with battery lights.


We wish all readers of this blog
a very Happy Christmas and a 
peaceful and book-ish New Year.
