I just spent a wonderful weekend with my 12 year nephew binding books.
He lives in a small SE Alaska fishing community and he's been learning to
bind books via books and long telephone calls to me. I was wonderfully
impressed how skilled he was and I'm wondering if there are other
bookbinders in the under sixteen set.
I would love to hear from bookbinding teachers about successful teaching
projects as I am hoping to keep him interested through the mail by
sending "projects" out to him periodically.
I'm also interested in hearing about any exhibitions that might be geared
at children. I would very much like to pull him into the book
community. Right now I'm his only contact.
