The first book is made up of interlocking booklets that can be interchanged, replaced, used for sewn signatures or loose ephemera. It can be expanded (more sections added) at any time without interference to the covers. It is an unusual and unexpected form for a book, suited for creative story telling or joining separate chapters of a narrative.

The second book is made up of a series of 'envelopes'. It has an exposed spine sewn with a chain stitch. It can be used to hold samples, prints, or messages. It’s a perfect structure to hold keepsakes and all those little things that require safe storage. The decorative options are guided only by the imagination.

Participants come away with two charismatic books, ready to personalise and ripe for development.
