Friday Night Flicks: The Stick Book

Book artist Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord has recently begun posting a series of short how-to videos, demonstrating simple books you can make at home from readily available materials. Since I know some of you are looking for activities to share with children or grandchildren during the summer holidays, I thought I would post one of those videos today.



You can find more of Susan’s videos under the heading The Joy of Making Books, or look at some of her artist’s books on her website.

With the help of Susan’s instructions, perhaps you will make some books this weekend.

    I actually used a variation of this, with bamboo skewers. I clipped off the sharp tip. It’s an easy yet elegant way to bind a book, and you can do it with speed if you have a lot of copies.
