Patience: Handmade Books

For those of you who are interested in bookmaking, here's a wonderfully made video that displays Patience, the puzzle-like work of paper artist, Randi Parkhurst of the Pacific Northwest. I found it mesmerizing to watch how each book fits perfectly back into place. It's even more impressive when you keep in mind that Randi made all of the individual papers that compose each book!

Find lots more information about artists' books at Randi's website and her enjoyable blog.
