      >My name is Konstantin Mihov - a 16 year school boy from Bulgaria. I study
      in
      >the Frist English Language School in Sofia but before tht I have been an
      art
      >pupil for seven years. I did not study bookbinding there but still they are
      >connected - I have my passion for art from there (and bookbinding is an art
      >after all). I have become interested in bookbinding just a few months ago
      >but since then I have tried to make some beautiful and useful bindings
      >either with vellum (the only type of genuin leather I was able to find in
      >Sofia) or with some synthetic materials - synthetis furs, lizard skins,
      >snake skins, even synthetic vellum. I have been very happy with all of
      them.
      >I am still learning of course but so far I have made my journals, diary,
      >even a notebook for school and some of my journals have been given to my
      >parents who enjoy them thoroughly. I have been happy to make them because I
      >have not been able to find the right notebook for my taste. I believe that
      I
      >have a nice view on everything that has to do with this art and I am able
      to
      >desing myself some really nice journals. But I am still learning. I hope to
      >be able to post some pictures soon so that I can show off with my work that
      >I will be really happy to have you analysed and qualified.
      >
      >Apart from bookbinding I have another passion that has something to do with
      >art - collecting fountain pens. I have started with this just two years ago
      >but since I am a student I am not able to purchase many of them. You can
      >have a look at the site I have built (it will soon be moved to a location
      >with .com) where you can have a look at the pens I have and some other
      >interesting links to the fountain pens world. On my new site I will have
      the
      >jourals I make pictured but it will take some time till that moment. Any
      >way, I am happy to be part of this community.
