In case you’re wondering…
about bent books and what they are, I am going to give you a peek inside some of mine as well as giving you a step by step outline on how to make your own. Bent books changed my life as a writer, allowing me to keep track of all my wonderful (and not so wonderful) ideas as well as my doodles and snippets of conversation I collect for ‘future’ books. Not only are bent books great for writers, they are fantastic for gardeners, cooks, birdwatchers, artists, inventors – in fact anybody with a hobby. The best thing – you can tailor make them to serve your purpose.
So…watch this space.
I had a dig through my drawer of dreams, doodles and dibbledots and found my first ever bent book. I had a read and a chuckle and have included a pic for you. (Just to clarify – it is not a flying hippo – but a hippopotamus fairy)
It was my first, rudimentary bent book. Not much to look at, but a treasure trove of ideas.
