Sydney Bookbinding

Welcome to my Bookbinding Blog

The making of books, the teaching of bookbinding and the association with other bookbinders and book artists has become the focus and passion of my life. Bookbinding has many aspects and we debate a lot about the precise definitions of various aspects but, working with our hands within this discipline, challenging our skills and creativity is intriguing, frustrating and exciting.

I have gone back to painting. I painted quite seriously for the first part of my life then discovered bookbinding.

This meant I had to study bookbinding to become proficient in this demanding and fascinating activity. This took several years and then I was busy honing my skills and enjoying teaching it.

However, there was always the lurking desire to get back to painting some time. I have a lovely painter neighbour and with her prodding I have set up my studio and try to get a session of painting done each day. Life is good when I can paint in the mornings and bookbind in the afternoons.

I share with you some of my watercolours – the medium I have enjoyed working in for a long time. My inspiration is generally  nature – with some geometric shapes creeping in. I do not control the images too much, let them develop as I respond spontaneously – if the geometric shapes appear so be it – what they mean I am not sure. Perhaps my desire to link man with nature.

Hope you enjoy this new blog inclusion.
