Book Review: Handmade Bookmaking by Yo Yamazaki

I discovered this great inspiring japanese book on bookbinding a while on etsy. It sold out before I could get a copy but luckily alittlegoodness recently found a copy for me. The instructions are in japenese, but there are lots of detailed drawings and the featured books are just amazing.



ISBN 978-4-579-20970-5

New memo pockets in the making

I’ve been really busy lately cutting, folding and gluing lots of pockets for my memo pockets, which is actually the thing I like least about making them. But now I have about 60 single pockets ready and I can enjoy the fun part – choosing paper for the covers, creating the covers and – best of all – putting everything together.

These are the first two I finished and I will be adding them to my etsy shop soon:

New memo pockets for my etsy shop
I must admit I never really liked the color orange nor did I had a thing for pink, but a few years ago I found these crazy orange and pink colored sneakers and I couldn’t resist this strange combination. I think I wore them for about 2 years uninterruptedly until they fell apart. So when I saw this paper I had to think about them and I couldn’t resist either. I’m also making a little blank book to correspond, so I might add them as a set.

In contrast I created this very natural uni colored memo pocket in light beige book linen.

More yellow art finds on etsy

I’m still looking around for more yellow prints for my yellow wall project and I’ve discovered some really nice ones.


Goblin Market by heidiburton.


And I already ordered this cool print by inkdesigner.


I really love this Let’s go camping print by ashleyg, but I already have one print by ashleyg, so I’m afraid this one will have to wait.

If you have any recommendations let me know.
