DAS Bookbinding

There was a moment when I'd seen one too many questionable bookbinding video tutorials on YouTube and briefly considered what would be involved in addressing that deficiency.  Fortunately, I found DAS Bookbinding, and it's clear that the niche of good, clear, fundamental instruction on making books is extremely well covered already.

His videos are excellent. If you're interested in starting to make books, you should check them out.

May I Interest You in a Book?

In 2017, I was selected to contribute a book to the San Francisco Center for the Book's annual Small Plates project. It was the first time I'd done an actual edition of a hundred books.

Being located in San Francisco, the Center, which normally hosts about 400 classes per year in bookbinding, printing, calligraphy, and related arts, has been closed since The City issued their Shelter in Place Order on March 17, 2020.

If you've ever thought about starting a limited edition book collection, they have a variety of offerings as well as other book-related materials, and most recently, items from their instructors.

Clarifying, this sale is through the Center. I have most of my own portion of the edition as well, but right now, my day job is secure. I'd much rather you support them or another artist who has lost their income right now.

Contact Disabled

Hey, I've had a little flurry of spam getting through the contact page, so I've disabled it for the time being.

You can email to Brian at the domain if you need anything.

Stay safe out there.
