Gift Guide: Top 5 Covetable Gifts for bookmakers
1. Peachey miniature bookbinding tool set $650 tiny tools (1/4 the scale in size) crafted by master craftsman Jeff Peachey. “Unbelievably cute and accurate”!
2. Type case coffee table by xenasdad on etsy $650 because type cases look so beautiful when you fill the boxes with found objects or collage into them. And what book maker/printmaker/artist doesn’t love more table space?
3. Japanese push drill $64.50 punch effortless holes into material. As pressure is applied downwards on the drill, the bit spins, producing a drilling action and thus a super clean hole. Way better than a sloppy power drill.
4. Print Gocco kit $100-300 access to screenprinting in the comfort of your home. Also, Gocco can print up to a hundred prints before having to be re-inked. Perfect for large book editions.
5. Book & Paper Press $325 because it’s better than using The Printmaking Bible to flatten book blocks and covers.
