That's great to know. I am hoping to go to Dallas this fall and I will
check those things out!
I think the Glassell school in Houston has had bookmaking workshops, and
Cathy Hunt, the printmaking teacher at U of H, has taught paper and
bookmaking in the past. We are trying to get her to do that again. Thanks
for the link to the bookmaking list.
If you were going to make a book for photos, would you print the photos on
the paper you were going to bind into the book, or would you make the book
and then mount the photos onto the paper separately?
