The Duotone series use solely black-and-white materials to create contrasting elements and to accentuate the structure and form of the objects. […] Originally, when I first conceived the piece, both […]

Natalie Stopka

Gorgeous bindings! Doilies! Lace! Luscious fabrics! Beautiful colors! Ribbon! Applique! Embroidery! So much to love in these lovely handmade books by Natalie Stopka.

Book Forms by Various Artists

Red Dos-a-Dos Book by A. Fain Books. When I first heard of this book form, I thought it was named after the do-si-do dance step.
