Book Photos

I've been taking some pics of my books to put up in my Etsy store. I'm not a professional photographer, so I'll be happy if I can come up with some half-way decent photos. Above are some of my first attempts, just to show you what my books look like. I took these in natural light, but have just bought an Ego light, so I'm going to try it out to see what happens.
I've noticed that the Etsy forums (Etsy (http://www.etsy.com/) is an excellent artist's and crafter's website, if you aren't already familiar with it) are full of angst-laden posts from people who are struggling to improve their product photos, so I have plenty of company....-

Sliced Book Sculptures

A friend recently emailed me about a website featuring "sliced book sculptures" by an artist named Brian Dettmer. Pretty amazing stuff.

If you'd like to see more pictures of his work, here is the url:


Opening Day

Hi, and welcome to the Moon Bindery blog. I am a bookbinder in Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, and I'll be posting stuff about my handbound books and about bookbinding, plus a selection of info about other interesting book-related sites.
