backlog: the finale, part 1

Will this backlog thing ever end? Probably not if I don't pick up the pace. I have 13 more (!) books to show you that I made in the past couple of months, plus a bunch of other gifts and such, and in the interest of getting on with things I'll be cramming them all into two more posts. I have big plans for this here blog in 2010 and I'm raring to go. So, let's get 'er done!

Here it is, part 1 of the giant backlog custom work finale!

1. A book of famous people for a little girl named Riley. Finally, Ex Libris Handmade does The Ramones!!

2. A 10-page with 2-page spreads for each letter for a little girl named Pilar.

3 & 4. Two bright and fun books for cousins, Maddux and Kyle.

5. A Favorite Things book for a little boy named Maddox.

6. A rock & roll book for a little boy named Graham.

7. An animals book for a little boy named Calvin.
...dude, that's a lot of books. And more to come!


  1. Wow! That's a lot of books and they're all awesome. It's crazy to imagine you doing all of these in a short amount of time. When did you sleep? I'm excited to see more.
    love, t

  2. Sleep? I'm not sure what that is anymore....

  3. I think you should make a hair bands book. Half joking.

  4. Just wanted to let you know, I nominated your custom books for the handmade olympics event 2 (handmade goodies for kids).

    I love your books and hope you win!
