Sometimes its easier being a lurker isn't it... and perhaps I wasn't sure if you wanted my opinion, the standard of your work both inspires and intimidates me...But I love reading about what you're up to, beautifully bound books, techniques, crazy experiments and all! Yesterday I made my own paste and tomorrow I'm going to have a go at making book cloth. Third time lucky hopefully!
I follow your blog assidously and am interested in everything you have to say. But I am not a professional bookbinder and can only say BRAVO!
In this instance, lack of commenting is due to using an RSS reader to follow your posts -- but in response to the constant well spring of creative get-up-and-go you share with us, I've started a local book arts critique group, to get more projects to completion!
Also an RSS follower - echo the thoughts of Sarah - gazing at your work through the ether from the bottom of Africa is both inspiring and frustrating - not sure that the opinions of a novice binder are of interest to someone as accomplished as you....
Total agree with Sarah and Pat: I love to see your work and am amazed by your books. I like how you share so much of the process itself. But being not a professional binder, I feel shy and intimidated - it seems inappropriate to comment. (Plus one has to comment being logged in to some site like google, or wordpress, where I don't maintain an active account; would much prefer commenting by name and webadress.)
I think comments are not easy to give,... Maybe my own blog is a kind of comment on your work/blog (and some others like dragon books)who are inspiring me.
