I got asked about my book art section in the comments the other day, and it got me thinking whether I used the correct wording when I titled that section. When I looked up the definition of “book arts”, I found out it’s used when talking about physically making a book or making a book into some sort of art form, like these hedgehog books I found on Etsy.
Long ago in a galaxy far far away, I used to make handmade books, so I should have known the definition. I’m more about filling books than making them these days. I buy all my books at Dick’s, eBay, Etsy or library sales, and I alter them. The photos in my book art section aren’t from books I made myself, so I decided to change the title of the section to Art Journals to avoid any confusion.
If you want to know more about my daily book exercise, I wrote about it here.
