Future Book Artists

This week the Preservation Department hosted Bloomington’s Girl Scout Troop 3468. They came to learn about book arts so they could earn their Book Artist Badge.

They got to see some nice old books

and learn about how they were constructed.

Chelsea Hoover demonstrated pamphlet sewing.

Anitta Salkola-White taught them step-by-step how to make their own blank books using both 3- and 5-hole pamphlet sewing patterns.

Doug Sanders, Lara Tokarski, and I helped them make their pamphlets. It was fun for everyone!

  1. I can see this is is terrific public relations and education about bookbinding, conservation and the book arts. How wonderful to have more people understanding and appreciating what we do.
