Time To Dance!



Hello all, I've been having a blast making these little accordion style books. Here's a sneak peak at one, more images to follow... do you think there's a market for handmade books? What with all the magazines folding and publishers being laid off I wonder if now's a good time to be writing a children's book (or making art period)! thoughts?

i make handmade books all of the time. i found a video here that shows you an really easy and green way to do it. i am sure you could use your fun illustrations for the covers.

forgive my ignorance, but do you sell the illustrations anywhere on the island? i would think that there would be a huge summer market for it.

It's never a good time, LOL! But if you're excited about an idea then you just have to go for it... to me it's not a choice...

Sweet books! :-)

I agree. These would be tres adorable. I would buy them and I don't have little kids anymore (except for myself!).

Nowadays, you could probably self-publish and use your blog and the internet for advertising.

I say, "Go For It" as well!!
