Airbrushed Decorated Paper-By Amy Borezo
One of my great pleasures in hosting the Bind-O-Ramas is to to see binders and book artists challenge themselves to try new techniques and often create something truly special. In this case the standout for me is Amy's decorated paper. Below her description of how she created it. Thank you Amy. View all entries featuring bindings of "The Bone Folder" in the 2012 Bind-O-Rama here .

The Bone Folder 
by Ernst Collin(translated by Peter D. Verheyen), I was inspired to create a version of the GermanStiffened Paper Binding. The portion of the text itself which most interested me was thesection on decorative papers. While the binding style is modest, I wanted the decorativepaper used for the covering material to be inventivehaving both a modern feel toecho the graphics of the time period in which the book was written, and a contemporary,process-oriented sensibility. To accomplish this, I used a bone folder (in keeping withthe title of the book) to score a pattern on paper, which I then folded and airbrushed tocreate a unique geometric design. To begin, I first scored a hexagonal grid onto a pieceof Cave paper using a metal bonefolder. Next, I folded the paper into a concertina in onedirection (horizontal) along the scored lines. Leaving the mountain and valley foldsintact, I aimed the airbrush so that the paint would only hit one side of the mountain foldwith red paint.I then turned the paper around 180 degrees and painted the other side of the mountainfolds with the airbrush in yellow. The color dries fairly quickly and I was able to nowflatten the paper and begin folding along the diagonal scored lines. I changed to whitepaint and repeated the process of aiming the airbrush to only hit one side of themountain fold with the white paint. I decided I liked the variation of having heaviercoverage of white near one corner with a gradual fade to the other corner. This effect

was easy enough to produce by angling the airbrush slightly.I flattened the paper again and folded along the opposing diagonal for the finalapplication of white paint. I debated whether to continue along more folds, but felt likethe resulting pattern was visually strong. I particularly like that the final design has astrong Art Deco look and that the paint was used to capture the physical process of thepattern being made through folding. I finished the binding by adding a subtle color fadeto the book cloth on the spine with the airbrush in red.Go to Amy'sblogfor detailed views of this fantastic binding.Amy Borezo received an MFA in Painting and Printmaking from RISD in 2000. Aftergraduating, she worked both as a bookbinder in a production bindery and as a bookmechanic at Daniel Kelm's Wide Awake Garage where she learned that you canreinvent the book each time you make it. Amy is now a contemporary book artist and theproprietor ofShelter Bookworks, an edition binding studio in Western Massachusetts.

Bind-O-Rama 2012 Now Online
Though often cursed as constraining choice, set book exhibits can also be fun asexemplified by the entries that largely stayed true to the Germanic nature of the text.High-points for me were the decorated papers and the adoption of more basicstructures, including the stiffened paper binding. Sometimes less is more. We hope youwill enjoy this exhibition featuring the work of established and nascent binders.

I had the pleasureof helping mail out numerous copies of these while working at Yale ('91-'92) andremembered it well.Long story short, the opportunity was too good to pass up.
