Bibliomuse 2: Books

In my last post I shared new work from my Bibliomuse 2 series - a subseries of KEEP: Modern Library.
At the end of the summer I had completed four wall pieces and now I have a mind to create artist's books to accompany each wall piece.

Here are the fruits of that labor:

 The Scandal of Silence, No. 2 


 The Impact of the Social Science, No. 2


Theory of Collective Behavior, No. 2

Accordion books are so versatile. I love how they can look similar to "regular" bound books.

Or, break into dance and become sculptural objects.

I'm on a roll with bookmaking lately and am enjoying the small scale.

I have been sharing my process over on Instagram so join me there on my instagram account if you'd like to follow along.

And, remember, I teach bookmaking and paper arts on-line on Creativebug.

There is a simple accordion book class as well as more complicated binding classes (Coptic and Japanese Side Sewn) - so check that out if you are getting the bookmaking bug like I have lately!


  1. beautiful books -- I'd be interested to see how they partner with their 'mother quilts'

  2. Thank you! And, yes, I'm looking forward to exhibiting them together.

  3. they are wonderful! I have taken a few of your classes on Creativebug, enjoyed them!
