Buttonhole Books

Over the past few weeks I have been making buttonhole books and as you can see I have been making them in quantity.  I taught a workshop at the Newport Paper and Book Arts Festival on how to make this book.  I wanted to have muscle memory, hence, the number that you see plus two that I gave away to my helpers.  Once you have the routine of binding down you can bind quickly and successfully.
