Bone Folder used as textblock in workshops

Very nice to see the Bone Folder being used in a workshop setting, this time in Nova Scotia on July 9 as part of Susan Mills' Full Tilt Single Session Bookbinding Classes.When I made this edition available as downloadable signatures it was my hope to see it being used this way. Glad to see it happening. If anyone else is using it in a similar way, or just binding it for themselves I'd love to see the outcomes so feel free to send me a picture or two.To download the signatures see the sidebar at left.Images below from Susan's site.
