bookmaking at the library

a crafty afternoon
at the ny public library.
the iconic one with the lions in front.

esther k. smith
of purgatory pie press
author of some really cool books
on making books
brought papers and rubber stamps,
glue sticks and scissors and
cool stuff from the press for show and tell.

maura madden of crafternoon
arranges these gatherings every so often
with crafty librarian jessica pigza who brought out
a collection of the library's books on bookmaking.

it was fun
getting my hands dirty
and making a mess
on someone else's table.

and playing with the hipstamatic app

the library is wrapped for renovation


  1. I love these images. Really moody. The old stamps look great! I also love the clock in your sidebar - how did you get this there???

  2. Looks like you've been having a great time.

    I'm off to check out the links.

    best wishes

  3. Thanks so much for coming to Handmade Crafternoon at the library. Love the photos, and hope to see you at the next one on March 20th!



  4. Esthers awesome. She teaches an excellent class at Cooper Union on bookmaking.
