Books with Images

There’s a WordPress site that has a bunch of different handmade books with images. I especially like the ones focused on nature, how they use sewing and other crafts to depict a beetle or a bird. Sometimes there’s text in the background, but the image is the main focus.

An altered board book takes on new life with colorful beetle illustrations.

I’m not sure if this book is only images, but I love the cover–the craftsmanship that went into this piece. It includes stitching and folding from Geraldine Newfry.

This book doesn’t necessarily have images, but I thought it was pretty cool with the egg cartons. I’m starting to realize the extensive realm of this craft of handmade books. It’s really eye opening what people can do.
