The challenge of a monthly artists' book started in January of 2017. Hundreds of artists' books have been made and shared via the bookbinding community on Instagram. Join us in the fun of creating with book art!

Rules of Play:

1- Repost the monthly theme photo on your Instagram account at the beginning of the month to let us know you are joining in. 

2- Make an awesome artists' book using the theme as your guide.

3- Share your process along the way throughout the month if possible and join in our conversations about the books in the forums.

4- Take great photos of your finished book and post it with the tag #areyoubookenough AND the tag for that month’s theme.

5- Pick out your favorite 9 from the finished books for the month and make a grid of them on your Instagram to share with the community. Make sure to use the hashtag #areyoubookenough in the caption.
