B4024. Bound: Over 20 Artful Handmade Books / Ekrem
B4024. Bound: Over 20 Artful Handmade Books by Erica Ekrem. 2015. 144 pp. 8.5"x10". Paper.

How beautiful and functional can a book be? That is the question that moved professional bookbinder Erica Ekrem to write Bound, a collection of over twenty Vintage, Nature, and Leather projects with an elegant and slightly unusual aesthetic. She focuses on simple modifications on basic stitches and new stitching techniques. Ekrem also incorporates traditional sewing techniques, such as embroidery, and integrates wood burning, beachcombing, and botanical pressing into her process. A section on the basics you'll need to know is provided as a reference. The extraordinary projects include pages stored in a mason jar, nested within a leaf, and bound between cigar box cover boards, as well as a unique ocean-inspired journal bound between shells.

B3307. True Nature / Bash
True Nature: An Illustrated Journal of Four Seasons in Solitude by Barbara Bash. 2004. 144pp. 7.75"x10". Hardcover

Calligrapher Barbara Bash has created this lovely nature journal, which combines a handwritten text with delightful watercolors. She caringly records and reflects on her encounters with animals and plants during solitary walks around the countryside of upstate New York. She captures wondrous moments in the natural environment: a dragonfly's brief pause, a surprised deer in tall grass, woodchucks watching her from a distance, a raindrop making its way down a windowpane. This hardbound book is a delight. The dust jacket is of uncoated, cream laid-finish paper, backed with plastic so it does not tear. Hidden underneath, a green cloth covers the boards with a small watercolor tipped in a recess on the front cover. The exquisite illustrations are printed in full-color on a soothing cream paper. It makes a wonderful gift.

B4027. Shapes for Sounds /Donaldson
B4027. Shapes for Sounds by Timothy Donaldson. 2008. 176pp. 9"x10" Hardcover

Writing is a way of making spoken language visual and static. This book explores handwritten alphabets, machine-made letters, and non-alphabetic visual communication (such as sign language). The author is a calligrapher, and the first part of the book delves into the history of writing and historical hands, then moves to semaphore, bar codes, binary code, and more. The book provides a synthesis of many related disciplines in an easy to understand text.

B4026. Letterwriting in Renaissance England
B4026. Letterwriting in Renaissance England. 2005. 216pp. 9"x12". Paper.

We have many books on the formal hands and the books great and small that they were used in. However, there is much less for the general reader on the everyday use of the handwritten word in correspondence. This book fills part of that gap. There are short discussions of tools, letter writing manuals, the letter and social signals, use of secretaries, love and friendship, and the postal "system." There are wonderful examples with thorough descriptions, providing further insight into the subject. The book is elegantly designed and finely printed to grace your bookshelves. Though the exhibit is long past, with this book you get to savor it at your leisure, sitting down in a comfortable chair with your favorite beverage.
