This inspiring guide explores bookmaking with artist and teacher Margaret Couch Cogswell, who reveals her own unique techniques in detail. Cosgwell's imaginative projects include a mini-hardcover with a companion bag; a beginner-friendly accordion fold book; and even a book you can wear as a crown! Conversational instructions and numerous gallery images will help crafters find their own creative voice.
