On Display at UAF Rasmuson Library:
These little books are more art objects than functional books, although they can be both.  The spotlight of the binding is on the spine where the texture of colored threads woven back and forth provides a background for clusters of beads and other objects. Each book has a distinct personality determined by choices of papers, palette, and embellishments.
All books on loan from participants of Woven Spine Workshop,
UAF WINTERmester 2018, instructed by Margo Klass
