Auna specializes in decorative techniques in leather, which she uses in here bound journals, albums and boxes. She will be sharing her experience in a weekend class on March 29th and 30th(Saturday and Sunday) from 10am to 4pm. No previous experience in bookbinding or leather working is needed to create a beautiful soft leather bound book in a weekend. Add surface design to the leather covers using linoleum relief cuts to create texture, image and color. Decorative endpapers and a deckled edge text block will complete the aesthetic of the book. By the Sunday afternoon, you will have made one or two fully designed hand-bound leather books.
Here are examples of Auna's beautiful leather work to inspire you to come create your own leather bound books!
