When a fellow book artist was planning her wedding, she asked all her book artist friends to contribute a handmade book for her bookquet that she would carry down the aisle. Being a crochet fiend, I was excited to combine crochet with bookmaking for this collaborative project.

During the unveiling, given that everyone was familiar with my other crochet work, they flipped through the little pages looking for the conjugal bits.

It’s for a wedding, I chided. Have some decency.

Yes, it’s for a wedding, they said, so why’d you leave them out?

For the next one I have no choice.
