Shannon Bokman Art Blog
This is the inaugrual entry to ArtID for the Bokman Books. Thanks to all who have wandered in to see the books and art!
I am Shannon Bokman, and live in Cleveland, Ohio. I started making books about seven years ago, after a reading a magazine article. I bought an instructional book by Keith A. Smith, on bookbinding and bookmaking, and things took off from there!
I'd like the blogs to keep everyone up to date on new books I come out with, exciting techniques I may learn, and pictures of decorative and intricate new stitches. The stitches and binds are really the fun part - they are complicated, but so gorgeous when complete.
The first big thing to report is a class with (in my opinion) a genius of a bookmaker, Daniel Essig, at the end of January. More updates as the day comes closer!
Check back regularly for new books for sale and show, and thanks for stopping by!
