Hello all :)
After a long think about what our 1st monthly book-art challenge could be,I have finally decided on one which hopefully you will want to take part in!

The theme is ...  

                                  ~   Multiple Bindings  ~

Here are some ideas..You could -
*Have a small book, encased inside a larger book, each with a different style of binding.
*Layer bindings on top of eachother.
*Make an Acocrdion style book, with each fold a different binding type/material.
*Produce a fold out book, with different bindings.
*Make an art journal page featuring some mini books/with different bindings.
The list is endless :)

Please can all submissions to this challenge be posted in the folder '1st Book-art challenge - multiple Bindings'
If we say the timeframe for this challenge is 3 weeks from today - So thats the 18th June. (Although very flexible)

After this date, I shall make another journal entry showcasing the work, and put them as a feature on the BookArtEnthusiasts homepage.

Just to confirm - This is not a competition, but a challenge. You do not have to take part as a member of this group, but it would be great if you did :) Also I'm sure comments on any of the work featured within this challenge, will be much appreciated :)

Thanks in advance to anyone who takes part/ or comments on the work submitted. I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up with :D

Welcome to BookArtEnthusiasts!

Hello to anyone reading this!

The purpose of this group is to hopefully inspire and motivate anyone interested in Book making / Book art / Artists books / art journalng ect, and anything book related. The aim being to share knowledge and our passion for creating/or filling books :)

I hope to have a section within this group with a number of tutorials from different book binding techniques to creative styles of decorting our books both inside and out.
If you would like to submit any tutorials that would be awesome!

Monthly challenge
Providing there are enough members - I was thinking we could have monthly book art challenges. For example we could have a chosen theme,then create a mini book or standard sized book inspired by that theme.We could even have journal page challenges.
Please, let me know what you think of this :)

Sorry I accidentally added one of my books into your tutorial (wrong section). Could you relocate/remove it from that section please? Thank you.

Is there any folder for book cover art? I saw 2 cover arts but they r put in tutorial folder? Where should I submit my book cover arts?
Runblackwolf Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Professional General Artist
They are mine and I'v put them in the wrong folder yet again !
HectorHimeros Featured By Owner Aug 6, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
So where is the right folder? I dont see any folder for book cover arts?

Not sure as I asked to have it moved into the right one. But as I have just found after submitting a work to another group try looking at the top bar when submitting and look for beautiful books , that's where mine ended up.

Thank you for excepting my book Mystery is in the pages, but I see it has gone into the tutorial section? I didn't seem to have a choice which folder it went in, but probably my mistake. A bit confused as I have only just joined DeviantArt. So many wonderful and inspiring books on here btw :-)
