A few weeks ago I did a book making workshop with a group of embroiderers in Exeter. Many of them brought their own beautifully embroidered fabrics to cover their books with. It's always such a joy to see all those little books emerging.
My photos aren't brilliant as I'm mostly focused on teaching, but they give you an idea of the wonderful variety of little books produced. Several people put buttons and beads on their books. You should be able to click on the images to see larger versions.
