I just discovered your blog, and love your work! Thanks for posting so many great pictures. Now I'm really excited for my leather class at the San Francisco Center for the Book in February!

I discovered your blog a while back, and find your work so beautiful...this year's "gallery" is wonderful! thank you. I'm new to book making...as I was looking at your books in the gallery...2 questions came to mind. What types of papers do you enjoy most for your pages? and how do you get the torn edges for your pages? Are you folding and using a knife?

thank you for your help!!

thanks :)

oh, two of these are maiko's books!

jacky, i fold and tear paper using a bone folder. and i use several different kinds of paper - whatever i get my hands on really; but one type of paper that i like working with is 50lb Canson drawing paper that comes in the Biggie art pads - i find that it folds and tears quite nicely.
