Of the Handmade Variety
The MFA program at The University of Baltimore focuses on Creative Writing and Publishing Arts. Part of publishing is understanding the history of books; how they are marketed; the different formats that exist; and understanding how books are made.
The pictures you find here are just some examples of some different formats of books I have made in my Book Arts class, and some others that I made at home.

Basically dying paper with tea and drying it, the oven added an aged look around the edges.
