Each project in this book combines bookbinding with a specific craft such as quilting, jewelry making, or polymer clay, and offer levels of expertise: basic, novice, and expert. Illustrated step-by-step instructions and photographs demonstrate how to construct the cover pages, and a unique binding technique, easy enough for a beginner to master. Each project also features two other versions with the same binding geared to those with more or less experience. The novice version is for those who have no knowledge of the craft and want shortcuts, but love the look. For the quilter's book, for example, vintage quilt pieces become the covers so all that's needing in the binding. Or if you're interested in wool felting use an old sweater. This offers great opportunities for upcycling. The expert version is for those who have a great deal of knowledge and proficiency of a certain craft - the master art quilter, for example. For this version, an expert guest artist has created the cover and the author has created the binding. This offers yet another creative opportunity - the collaborative project. Since crafters often get involved with round-robins and other shared endeavors, this will show them yet another way to combine their skills. No other craft book offers the possibilities and challenges that Adventures in Bookbinding does. Readers will return to it again and again to find inspiration and ideas.

Born in Montreal, he now lives in the coastal village of Sointula, B.C. Painter, Paddler: The Art and Adventures of Stewart Marshallfeatures Stewart Marshall's dramatic watercolour, acrylic, and oil paintings. It also includes sketches and drawings from his diaries, carried with him on his kayaking expeditions. In addition, Andrew Scott describes the artist's many adventures on the water, his experiences with wild animals and even wilder weather. This insightful portrayal captures the highs and lows of a lifetime of painting and paddling, especially on the Pacific coast of North America.
