Bookbinding workshop at Sister Writes with Lindsay Zier-Vogel

There’s an ‘aha’ moment when making books – the moment the glue and paper and illustration board become more than just glue and paper and illustration board. There’s a moment when it’s a book! And I never tire of that moment.

Earlier this summer, I was able to share that “aha” moment with a group of women through Sister Writes, a non-profit writing workshop for marginalized women in Toronto and man oh man, did we have fun!

The Paper Place donated the gorgeous Nepalese cover paper and we added bits of decorative paper to the covers.

It’s so much fun to be able to debunk the myth of bookmaking as being necessarily difficult or impossibly precise. We had such a wonderful morning and now this group of writers has a place for their newest work.
