Artist Books - Beaded Bindings

Beaded Bindings

Sometimes I get carried away. Miriam Schaer taught our Book Arts Roundtable group how to make beaded bindings and I made a couple of them. I never finished them.  They are so labor intensive that I just can't see writing in any of them.  That is a problem with bookmaking. I give books away and everyone thinks they are so precious that what we have to write in them is not important enough.  I DO write in many of my books, because, after all, I can make more, but once you have so much time invested in a piece, you feel that what you have to write is not worthy of the book!
