NANCY PALLATHENA has been a public-school educator and weekend artist for forty years. Introduced to handmade book structures by Kitty Maryatt, she has pursued book arts classes ever since. Journal making was fun, but she longed for content, which has led her to the creation of book works from the text, hand lettering and collage to the binding.
