I find connections among books, art, music, libraries, travel, crafts and food.

Drop Spine (Clamshell) Box

Drop Spine (or Clamshell) box

Here is the first Drop Spine Box I made in 1992. I was in library school in Madison, WI, and I took this incredible hand book binding class by my boss, Jim Dast. He was the head of the Conservation Dept of Memorial Library, and I was a peon repairing books in his lab. I learned all the finest, traditional forms of book arts from him; he was amazing.

This is one of the places I keep my little favorite paper scraps.
