Alice Fox book binding experiments

I have books on the brain at the moment – if I’m not writing words for one, I’m playing about with book forms. On a recent workshop I was teaching, where simple book forms was a small part of what we did, I was inspired to try out some new bindings. I used some of the demonstration samples to experiment with and now they have become little books.

I recently got a copy of Little Book of Book Making, out in America (and I think a UK version is coming out later in the month under a different name) in which my work is featured alongside some amazing book artists. Making books is just a small part of what I do and I only use very simple structures, so I feel very honoured to have been included in such a collection.

    • Hi Debbie, it is available here but it will be published in the UK under the name I Love Handmade Books. I assume the content is the same. It is a lovely book šŸ™‚

  1. Hi Alice….your work is just lovely and inventive! I really enjoy your journal (another form of book šŸ™‚ ) here and seeing how your ideas grow and evolve…no detail is too humble to explore and enrich! Just lovely…many thanks for sharing!
