It’s Helsinki Book Fair time of the year. This time around I’m there talking about my poetry book, but before that some especially exciting things are happening: I’m one of the three finalists for Toisinkoinen book award handed out at a gala event tonight by the Finnish literature students of Helsinki University for the best second book to come out this past year. The other two finalists are amazing, so just to be nominated is an honour, but keep your fingers crossed for me anyway!
Knowing I’d have very little time at the end of this week for bookbinding, I was a super hardworking girl earlier. I have my #areyoubookenough artists’ book finished and photographed (to be shared early next week), and I have a massive stacks of books in various stages of unfinishedness. Thankfully there’s also a small stack of finished books!
These books have pages made out of heavyweight (200gsm) paper suitable for mixed media making these perfect for sketchbook or art journal use. The Coptic binding also allows the books to open flat for maximum ease.
Matchy-matchy endpapers and sturdy hard covers. Yours if you want ->
