All that Man Creates


Front Cover


Book block


Back cover

My first completed “artist book,” as opposed to the blank books I normally bind. The paper, which I made myself, is 100% recycled junk mail. Some of the pages are thin and cobwebby, some normal, and some quite thick and textured with the cover being the thickest and bumpiest of all.
I did use a scrap of Japanese rice paper to laminate to the cover since it didn’t take to folding very well.

About sappling

When God created the world, he did it in six days and rested on the seventh. I always wished there was just one more day in the week, an eighth day just for me to pursue the thoughts in my head and translate them to the physical world. There are only seven days, however, so I steal my creative moments in between being a mom and my work binding books and making boxes for clients all over New York City. I love working with my hands, learning new things, and I'm here to share those lessons with you. There are only seven days in a week. Why not eight? Guess I'll ask when I get there.

    This would be a fabulous book/canvas for colored paper collage.

    This looks beautiful – what are it’s dimensions? I imagine it to be quite small from the photographs, I like to think it may squeak a little when openened wide! Absolutely lovely.
