The Sunday Paper #121, August 21, 2016
Two Hands Paperie began in 1993 as a small bindery with a few hand-bound books and a small rack of decorative paper. Today, 23 years later, they carry hundreds of journals and notebooks and over 30 racks of decorative paper, as well as cards, books, art supplies, fine writing instruments, ink, stationery to inspire the writer in you, and unique gifts from around the world. They also offer printing services, classes on bookbinding and visual journaling, and host free events. Their website offers a small sampling of some of their favorite things, but to get a feel for what they have to offer you must take a trip to their brick and mortar location in Boulder, Colorado.

In the Studio:
I’m getting ready for the annual Red Cliff Paper Retreat which will take place in my studio in September. Our theme this year is paper vessels. I had such fun making this sample from handmade paper yarn (aka shifu)! I made sheets of abaca, pressed them, cut the sheets into expandable strips and twisted them into yarn. And then I was ready to wrap the balloon. If you don’t see the video below, click here to watch.
I’m sure that many of you have read about the mystery artist who placed intricate sculptures crafted from the pages of books around Edinburgh. Well apparently her last act occurred this year: a final, collaborative work was unveiled at the Edinburgh Book Festival.
This is a bit of old-ish news, but timeless nonetheless. Did anyone attend From Hiroshima to Hope in Seattle? This looks to be a lovely gathering at Green Lake in Seattle for the annual lantern floating ceremony honoring victims of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and all victims of war.
There’s a new animated version of The Little Prince by Mark Osborne who was asked to adapt Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s popular 1943 novella “The Little Prince” into a computer-generated animation film. You can read about the part that was created with paper animation here.
