In August, bookbinder Fran Kovac taught a class at the Morgan Art of Papermaking Conservatory & Educational Foundation in Cleveland, OH (www.morganconservatory.org).
The class focused on various decorative techniques, such as framing, attachments and foundation molding, and worked with leather, paper and book cloth, as well as various charms and illustrations suitable for Alice in Wonderland. The text blocks were made using books-in-sheets from Volcano Arts. The students added illustrations throughout the text before sewing, and the books were sewn with the French Link stitch on parchment straps.
Each student took home their own bound and decorated copy of Alice in Wonderland.”
The students were Edith Briskin, Michele Cotner, Margo Libman, and Amy Fishbach.
Beautiful work, ladies! Thank you, Fran!
