Book Swap #7 - Preview

Thank you to everyone who participated in our most recent book swap! The swapping is complete and your new books are en route. We had six participants this time, from four different countries. Here's a quick preview of the books; more detail will be posted about each book in days ahead.


Participants in this swap:
Buechertiger
AlternativeJournals
PrairiePeasant
MyHandboundBooks
PurpleBeanBindery
Jellygnite

The next swap is being planned for the end of August and it will be a theme swap, and the theme is Flag Books! (So not really a theme, more like, all the books have to use the flag book structure.) All BEST members are welcome to participate. Check the swap guidelines for more information about how it works.

How does one become a member?

hi! We are an "Etsy Street Team" - and there is just one requirement for membership, and that is to be and active Etsy seller, selling handmade books.

(if you aren't interested in Etsy, and you are looking for opportunities to swap books, check out the BookArtsForum, where book swaps happen periodically and they are open to everyone!)

Those are some really beautiful books! I'm really hoping by August I'll be moved and settled and ready to participate! :)
