I'm sure you know this feeling when you see something that really connects with you but are uncertain whether you are ready to spend money on it. That's precisely what happened to me with one of Luise Blackbird's prints.
This weekend was very tiring and intense. But these two days were among the most inspiring and wonderful working days of the year. All because I participated in the Book Arts Fair in Leiden (Netherlands.)
It's only three weeks left until Boekkunstbeurs, a fair organized by the bookbinders' and printers' guilds of the Netherlands. It means there's not much time to prepare, but enough time to plan a trip and buy a plane ticket!
Right opposite the entrance to our quarter in Leiden there's an old books shop. In the window passers by can see lots of book-earrings with marbled covers.
I decided not to wait until I edit the video and the photos from the Boekkunstbeurs (Book Arts Fair in Leiden, the Netherlands) and summarize my impressions right after the two-day event has ended.
