Friday July, 1 2011 - Book 42 - I've made a number of books with handles, but this one was my first. I even glued a "Handle With Care" label on its side to highlight that point. As excited as I was to make my first book with a handle (which I was sure would become the standard for books in the future...tucking a book under your arm just isn't cool), this production scene marked some serious deficiencies in my training. I ran out of clear tape (hence the duct tape), and I ran out of power for my drill again. Overall this book turned out ok, but it left me wondering...Can you HANDLE IT? Ha!
