Re: [BKARTS] longstitch binding



The beauty of making art is in taking that which has been done before and
extending and expanding it. If you are smart enough to make a book, you are
smart enough to explore and play with thread, knots and other assorted
goodies to become that which every book artist I've ever known aspires to
being:  an autodidact. Keith Smith offers photos of others' work as points
of departure for your own inventiveness. Go for it!

Best of luck and inspiration to you and all those who are brave and curious
about pushing the envelope.
