It's Gotta Go Somewhere

Yes, we know. You're a story writing MACHINE; so, where do you keep all the stuff you write? With the seemingly endless stream of new gadgets appearing everday, I could go all high tech but I think we need something a bit more tactile. Here are a few options for creating your own One-of-a-kind Artist's Books/Story Keepers:

Booklyn's ED Manual
Booklyn has brought together book artists and educators to write, illustrate, and design an education manual for use by other book artists and educators. This two year collaboration between artists and educators aims to get the peoples' hands making more books, inside and outside the classroom.

The ED Manual combines instruction sheets, lesson plans, book making terminology, and resource lists. We've not only illustrated how to make a book, but have included actual models of the books in each manual. The content of the manual is anti-copyrighted and the design allows for easy duplicating.

Bound manuals available for $35.00 + $5.00 shipping.

The Booklyn ED Manual can also be downloaded for free.
