Books Made out of Paintings

This weekend I got out my bookbinding supplies and made this journal. Paul has huge boxes full of practice paintings from college and right after college. They aren’t mounted on a frame, they are just on loose canvas. So I’ve been turning some of them into book covers. By the way Paul has been updating his blog lately. See more paintings here.

    I might put a few up for sale next week. It’s hard to price handmade books because they take a long time to make and the materials can get expensive if you use good paper.
