Project South Paw

Project Southpaw enlists American communities in the creation of notebooks to be offered to those without access to their own paper products. Participants learn basic bookbinding skills as they design and bind two notebooks from recycled paper bags. At the close of each workshop, one notebooks is collected from each participant and sent to a community in need.

These notebooks were made by Robert daVies.
