One of our Co-opists lived and owned a book store in Montreal, and still has connections there. One of her book world connections, Kate Battle, was out in California last fall and we were able to have a workshop from her. There were actually several possibilities for the workshop, I don’t remember them all now, but they all sounded cool. Amongst ourselves we ended up deciding on the Secret Spine Accordion Book. It just sounds yummy, doesn’t it? Indeed it was.

Kate is a fantastic instructor and had many great general process and specific structure tips. She also had some other examples of her work. A lovely day in the shop!
