Handmade Accordion Mini-Book

Signatures for a handmade book made by
Spokane artist, Esme Guenther

Bookmaking is a beautiful and complicated art form. A person must be good at planning and measuring to be a good bookmaker!! During my art school days there were a few assignments to make books in painting classes and calligraphy classes. It was challenging but rewarding. As we became more adept we did mini-book exchanges in Calligraphy class and the books I have are such treasures to me now.


A specific type of section, differing from the general term of section, in that a signature is a sheet that first has been printed, then folded to a section. Signature is a printer's term for the binder's word section. (Keith Smith)
