Our daughter discovered several years ago that she loves photography; I love her photos. Jeff and I recently received a handmade accordion book with her photos taken from different places she’s been to the last couple of years. She purchased the book from a bookbinder at an art show this past Fall in Rhode Island. It is simple and stunning, by itself. But, when filled with pictures that allow us a peek into her world while she is away, it becomes a precious thing.
Bookbinding is such a cool art---an ancient and useful one. Here are a few art books I’ve recently discovered on Flickr.
