At our Portland Art Collective Menucha retreat this weekend, Lorraine Jones and Laurie Weiss
taught us how to do the secret Belgian book binding technique. I made two books with magic decorative papers from my stash. The books measure 4 x 5 inches.
The above paper was painted and stamped on artist tissue paper. The black lines are webbing spray paint. Kyrlon makes it in several different colors. Contrasting colors add great texture to painted surfaces.
Here's what the backs of the books look like. You can get online instructions for this book binding technique Here. Now this technique is not so secret. I'm curious how it got its name.
