Ammonite book by Swirlything Ammonite book by Swirlything
So yeah, another book... 6 x 4 inch notebook, an experiment to see how well a drawing would work on the cover.

The image is in markers on parchment. The cord bookmark thing looks like it has a load of ugly knots at the end in these awful mobile phone photos, but it's actually a cluster of nice brown pebbles. Meh.

A couple of people mentioned wanting to see how these things are put together, so I have a series of progress photos here [link] if you're interested.

REALLY need to learn more binding techniques.

I'd love to buy one of these! How much would you like for one? It'd make a great gift for my friend that is an ammonite collector that loves to sketch.

Now I want to do a book binding course.

I think I do it in the second year, but If I get half as good at it as you are I'll be very happy with myself.

Great bookmaking. :)
I am starting a short bookmaking studio concentration in my class. What kind of bindings do you typically use? Maybe I can be of assistance. :)
