Rachel Hazell

Rachel Hazell divides her time between Edinborough and the isle of Iona in Scotland. We discuss how she teaches five or so workshops in cities around the world (Venice, Iona, Paris anyone)? These sound absolutely delightful – I’ve seen photos of some of the book and paper shops she frequents. Rachel is perhaps the first book artist to offer an online class – you’ll hear about her two popular courses: Paper Love and Book Love as we chat about some of the advantages of taking an online class. And we talk about Rachel’s brand new book: Bound: 15 beautiful bookbinding projects. You’ll hear about some of her favorite tools and papers, how she helps break down the barrier of facing a blank page and her belief that everyone has a book inside of them. Enjoy our conversation!

Minter Dry-Tear Guard Strip paper was the result of an inventive suggestion by bookbinder Bill Minter, who asked Tim Barrett at the University of Iowa if he could produce a sheet from which conservation guard strips (using in mending old books) could be torn dry, without the need to prewet, fold, or

Paper of the Week: Graph Paper

There are a lot of mundane papers that are pretty cool, like graph paper. I thought I’d do a little research about it, and it turns out that rectangular grid paper (used for scientific notation) was first offered for sale by a Dr. Buxton in London in 1794. I never realized there were so many
