My BookBook case came today.
And it is just so lovely. The details are fantastic and I feel the same way about it that I do with my Saddleback Leather bag - it will last a good, long while.

beautiful! I've made a few books here and there... it's very fun.

Yeah? I was thinking it would be fun to explore. I read a few tutorials the other day on it. How do you like it and what have you bound?

I don't have any good pics online of the outside, but this book

uses a Japanese stab binding -- pretty easy, once you have the measurements laid out well. I think you might like the Coptic stitch also.

I have quite a few beautiful books about making books, as well as the samples I did for the bookmaking/letterpress printing class I took, if you would like to come by and check 'em out. This weekend perhaps? I have a birthday party tomorrow morning and dinner plans Sunday, otherwise I'm open.

My half arathon is tomorrow and I have various out-of-towners around all weekend. Maybe next week when Fox and I do Sunday brunch?

Sure, give me a call! I don't think we have plans for then...

Pretty nice!
Also, somehow you made a few of those photos sexy as hell.
Heh. I'm such a bibliophile.

Completely unrelated to your snazzy new book and such, though they be awesome, but I thought I"d mention that Hulu seems to have the original Kingdom Hospital series up. You know, the one from Denmark? If you ever wondered how it ended.
