This book is her third and offers 25 projects for the beginning bookbinder/book artist. You don’t have to be a master bookbinder to enjoy these creations. The instructions are clearly illustrated and you are guided step-by-step through the process. Some of the structures presented are accordion books, single-signature books, multiple-signature books, flag books, pocket books and stab bindings. There are even some pop-up and origami techniques thrown in for the paper artist. There are many samples of Alisa’s (and other artist’s) books presented throughout the book.

As the title suggests, in this book she emphasizes the expression of feelings, emotions, thoughts, ideas, etc. in her creations. However, the overall feeling is one of just creating an artist book, regardless of content. In short, there’s something for everyone, from the novice book artist to the seasoned bookbinder. ( )
