Liz and I were brainstorming the other day about her "trade". I love her 5 senses post. What a wonderful little book that concept would make! I was in a book-making-mode for years and have a good reference library of on the subject. Have lots of samples and examples, taught a little class at a retreat one time, for inspiration (not that I was proficient at that) but I had some good ideas.
Making Memory Books & Journals by Hand is one of my favorites, great instruction and inspiration.

My favorite little book - Judy Serebrin's daily journal and also her work New Work: Soul Books.
This is so adorable - Barbara Correia of Badico Designs and fun images from Book Arts Jam 2003 and lots of good links. List of Bay Area Book Artist. Art Matters Online.
Another favorite book is Bookworks: Sue Doggett (ISBN 0823004910).
Isn't this lovely?

An old, rare book with the smell of ages. Yum. This and this make my mouth water via the most awesome BibliOdyssey.
