I've added an album on my page with photos of a fabric book on the subject of Braille and several book covers. I thought this was the place to share it? I will add some more soon - I love making books.
Hi Linda, I was looking at and admiring your books. This is the first I have heard of this and I have questions about them. I take it that the books are of your own work? I saw something about exchanging pages or something, but I don't quite understand that. You certainly wouldn't want to give away pages of your own books or would you? I'm going to read on this more, but right now I'm short on time. Interesting!
Hi Barbara, thankyou for your lovely comments. I had a look at the page exchanges but like you wasn't quite sure - and it all seemed to be a bit 'quiet'. Could be interesting though - we should both have another look when we have more time! :)
Linda and Barbara - the page swap is making pages for other people and then you have a collection of pages from those other folks at the end of the swap to make into a book. It's not the same as making your own book but it's lots of fun. Check out the blog http://thestoryofthetravelingpages.blogspot.com/
Linda - the way we set this swap up, we have 14 participants so we will all make 13 pages (you don't make one for yourself) and we are making 1 per month. We started in Jan 2010 and will be finished Jan 2011. But people set up swap parameters according to how they want it to work. You just get a group of people and then decide on how you want to do the swap. You can pretty much do anything you want.
Ruth has explained our current swap really well, but I thought I would add a suggestion for Linda and Barbara. Plus, I'm feeling really chatty today for some reason. LOL!
The group you swap with can be any size you think you can manage. If the two of you wanted, you could just swap with each other. That is one way to get a book started. Choose a theme and make a page for your partner's theme. You can follow up with more pages to make your own book, or keep the page as a stand alone. I am having a grand time stretching my creative ideas with this swap.
