ALASKA ART COLLAGE BOOK – This is one of two handmade books made for a friend’s birthday.  The collage photos were all cut from many American Art magazines that a friend gave to me.  I used 8 1/2 x 11 inch card stock to make this book.  Using card stock for the pages allows the magazine pieces to be glued without wrinkling.  I scored the left side of the pages 1 inch and then another 1 inch, bent the scored page under to give the page binding strength.  This also allows the book to lay flat.  A simple Japanese binding stitch completes the book.  Handmade gifts are something I really like to do.  Each time I worked on this book I thought of my friend!
