Canadian book arts

Last night we were welcomed to a gathering of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild at Susan's house in Calgary. It was a warm and sunny evening, filled with fine food and wines and the company of like-minded paper-loving souls.

The group welcomed Barry and I and included us in their show and tell sharing segment. We met fine bookbinders, book artists, papermakers, paper mache sculptors, paper spinners and folk like ourselves who did a bit of everything! We have been made very welcome in Calgary and have really enjoyed the hospitality and sharing with folk.

Some of Romy's fine, fine paper spinning, using kozo paper and lists of endangered species. The text appears then disappears as she spins...

An old book that Leslie was in the midst of restoring...

And the group having lots of fun around the extended table
