Reading Update
Fun with Washi: 35 Ways to Instantly Refresh Your Home, Accessories, and Packages with Washi Tape by Jessica Okui. I saw it on the shelf at the library and was curious… Pretty sure I won’t make any of the projects in this book, but some of them were quite imaginative, such as using washi tape as nail art or to make a fake headboard for your bed…
Washi Tape: 101+ Ideas for Paper Crafts, Book Arts, Fashion, Decorating, Entertaining, and Party Fun! by Courtney Cerruti. This was much better than the previous washi tape book I skimmed through. (Hey, they were beside each other on the shelf at the library, what can I say…) Some of the ideas in this book included covering switch plates, marking cables and chargers, making bandaids and binder clips more fun, adding color to glass cups and vases, and many more.
Making Mini Books: Big Ideas for 30+ Little Projects by Kathleen McCafferty. Pretty much what the title says – the projects in this book are for books that are a few inches across down to earring-sized books. While many of the projects exceeded my personal acceptable fiddliness level, there were a couple (such as the matchbook-style notebooks) that seemed as if they’d make great gifts.
Bookcraft: Techniques for Binding, Folding, and Decorating to Create Books and More by Heather Weston. This book provides a bit more history of various book forms and includes some more unusual forms, such as carousel and tunnel books, along with how to use paper cutting and folding techniques in the books you make.
Urgent 2nd Class: Creating Curious Collage, Dubious Documents, and Other Art from Ephemera by Nick Bantock. Somewhat interesting, but not engaging. I would hardly consider this to be an “art class”, as the back-of-the-book blurb asserts.

Reading Update
Map Art Lab: 52 Exciting Art Explorations in Mapmaking, Imagination, and Travel by Jill K Berry & Linden McNeilly. Loved! Definitely need to buy my own copy because the library copy is just bristling with “try this” bookmarks.
Making an Impression: Designing and Creating Artful Stamps by Geninne Zlatkis. Pretty good book about getting started carving rubber stamps, although it was definitely focused more on using the templates provided by the author than on actually designing or creating stamps.
Hawkeye, Volume 1: My Life as a Weapon by Matt Fraction, David Aja, Javier Pulido, & Alan Davis. I’ve been intrigued by the out-of-context Clint Barton snippets I’ve seen on tumblr, so I decided to check out the actual comic book. I did skip the Young Avengers comic in the back – probably would’ve read it if it had been in the same style as the rest.
