Save the cost of airplane tickets and immerse yourself in Japanese book binding and the arts surrounding it. Learn about wonderful washi (paper). Try your hand at suminagashi (ink marbling) and incorporate into your books.  Explore by building different book structures, using traditional tools and materials. Build a maru chitsu (wraparound case) to protect your new works. There's nothing more fun than wandering around a country you have never been to.


Stuart Hill has studied bookbinding with CBBAG under the guidance of Betsy Palmer Eldridge, Don Taylor, Dan Mezza and Rose Newlove.  With a background in engineering and architecture, his keen interest is in the discovery of book structures.  Please visit Stuart's website:  www.georgehillco.com
