The Outside of the Book

I'll admit that what's inside a book is far more important than what it's exterior looks like. But, like anything else people have focused their artistic energy on what's called Book Arts where they learn and practice the traditional (and sometimes nearly lost) methods of book binding and expand upon that to create contemporary -or otherwise- books that themselves are art.

From plain to completely non-traditional some of the Book Art people are creating are just really cool.

If you want to get into it, outside of some time with google, check out The Center for Book Arts.
