A New Book Artist is Born

Yesterday I showed my mom how to make book covers and signatures, then bind it all together with coptic binding. Below are photos of her first book. I think it is fabulous!

You are so artistic, and you must have inheritied your abilities from your mom. Is there anything you CAN'T do?
