An Abecedarian of BEST members: B

(This posting was edited/updated on January 25 with an additional “B” member).

This is the second in a series of blog postings where I will introduce you to members of the Etsy bookbinding team (BEST), moving from A to Z. Today’s letter is “B”, and we have a bevy of bookbinding boosters whose boutique banners begin with B.

Believe it or not: The busy but brilliant book artist wore a beaded bandeau while busily binding her beautiful bamboo book to barter for a bargain with a beckoning bodacious buyer.

Beginning with Beetlelady Books, I believe the blue dots burst off the page on this Red Wheels Journal:

Bumping over to Belasbooks, you’ll find a bundle of blue books, including this Old-school Blue Book book :

Browse in the boutique Bibliosophy Books, and you’ll find a book that is blue and beaded and even baked! Small Beaded Clay Journal:

Beth at BlueValentinePress has all her books at bargain prices: check out these beach babes: CLOSE OUT SALE - HAND IN HAND - A Hard Cover Travel JOURNAL with Collaged Covers and a Coptic Binding:

From Bookgirl’sStudio, aren't you curious about a book called Boudoir?

The Bookwright has a lovely botanical book with beach glass: Botanical green glass blank book:

Bound.To's shop has books with blossoms, biology, and beverages too: Winter Hot Cocoa - Mini Journal or Notebook:

From Baltimore, bowerbox press’s shop features a bounty of birds but this book with a belt begged for attention: Small Porthole Book with Handmade Paper:

And bringing the "B's" to a bouncy end, brightcarver's shop has this buff bound in brown and beautified with bobbles Spring Journal:
