Re: book structure



Hi Vivian & Nicholette:  I used the same directions from Tabellae Ansata to
make some books.  I used large pages from an old atlas (maps on both sides
of the pages) and sewed pages inside.  I also placed various things in the
pockets and collaged a bit on the outside covers.  They worked out very
well.  I am also interested to know how the red silk was used.  It sounds
interesting.
