I just got a new book on making books called "making books by hand". It has
a smaller variety of how to's, but seems to go through step by step very
good. It also has a great display of artists books in the back. MacCarthy

artist's books and boxes. Amazon can get it for you- and you can get to
Amazon thru my online bookstore- where I feature mostly rubber-stamp related
books (mail art, too!) <A HREF="http://members.aol.com/Melaniekrs/bookstore.ht
