The art and craft of bookmaking creates a special space to hold our words, drawings and ideas.
Here is a wonderful book binding craft to share with the children in your life, compliments of Oak Meadow Curriculum and School.
Bookmaking fosters an appreciation for the beauty of language. Handcrafted books can be used for stories, reports, or journaling–or be given to someone as a special reminder of the joy of writing. This thoughtful article, Hardwired for Writing: The Intelligence of the Hand explores both the cognitive benefits and charm of handwriting.
