Bookmaking at John C. Campbell Folk School

We finished binding the spine of the wooden books today. We still have a lot of work to do to it tomorrow. Mine is named “Brasstown Book.” It looks a lot like an old celestial map.

I filled the mica window of the third book with sparkly beads. Oops, I thought that I was finished but I didn’t do a closure. Shoot. That will be a problem to solve tomorrow.

We learned how to make this “centipede” tonight, but my eyes were too tired to do the second one he taught us! I like this a lot, though.
