I have read several books on bookmaking by hand. Most have standard ideas, and if you’ve read one you’ve pretty much read them all. Most will have a handful of usable ideas at best, but Zamrzla’s new work is an exception. I found project after project that is ideal for use with children either in a family or classroom setting, though most are too complicated for young children to make alone. I found the journal and collection bag of particular interest, perfect for scavenger unts, nature walks, or for that “junk pockets” child who picks up and saves all sorts of things all the time. Found items are to be placed in the bag and details written in the attached book. When through it all folds newly up and tucks away. But that is by no means the only fun and practical idea here. There is a waterproof book for poolside or the beach, a photo notes book to attach to a camera to record settings and notes about those special pictures, another book made from library book pockets and cards, and so much more. This book is accessible to neophytes to the art but is ideal for experienced book crafters.
