Hi everyone! Due to popular demand, I am offering my long and link handout for sale online. Fork over five buckaroos (UK friends, that is almost £0!) and I will email you your very own PDF. Included in this handout: preparation instructions and a sewing diagram for the basic long and link stitch, ideas for sewing and spine design variations, instructions on several techniques for creating the wrapper. Although these instructions are detailed, this handout was created to be supplemental to my demonstrations (so buy at your own risk!)
I owe a debt of gratitude to Anna Embree, bookbinding professor at the University of Alabama MFA in the Book Arts Program and Julie Leonard, bookbinding professor at the Center for the Book at the University of Iowa.
So great that you have ads on your blog page!–it means to me that you have really arrived.
Do I? I don’t see them! What for?
Ads are visible on free wordpress accounts – if that is what you have – to the general public. If you view it from the cozy place of your wp editor, then you won’t see it.
Great blog. Just getting into bookmaking and enjoying everything in my path.
Thanks! I suppose I knew there were ads somewhere, but since I never saw them I forgot all about it. I am glad you’re enjoying the blog. Go books!!
I just found your blog and I love it! I love book arts and this binding is beautiful.
Thanks so much Chelsea!! I am glad you found me!
