A Day in Davidson

I spent yesterday with a group of bookish people in Davidson, Saskatchewan. The event was organised by the Saskatchewan Chapter of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild, affectionately referred to by its members as CBBAG (pronounced ‘cabbage’).

The morning started with my presentation on Altered Books.

The slide show starts with images of my most liked and least liked works by others, then concludes with a survey of my own altered books.

The rest of the morning was spent making a customized version of Cabbage Pie.

Here are some of the diligent workers.

Then came lunch, a lovely repast provided by Leann with a little help from a few others.

The afternoon was spent showing and discussing work that people had brought.

One of the special highlights was the work brought back by Leann from a week-long Mark Making workshop in Victoria, BC.

All in all, it was a Grand Day Out.


If you would like to see more pictures from the day, you can find them on the CBBAG Saskatchewan website.

  1. Now you made me curious: What are your most and least liked altered books? – And how do you measure? And what did you tell people about?


    • Byopia Press says:

      Without going into details of specific book artists, I like best the works which contain ideas, and where the original content of the altered book is somehow reflected in the finished piece. I like least the hobby art journal form where people will even buy new books, then paint and collage the pages with no regard for the original content or even for continuity from page to page.
