Latest news and updates from June

book news

As you may or may not have picked up from reading my blog over the past few months, I’ve written a papercraft book, to be released exclusively through Barnes & Noble. I finished writing and illustrating the book months ago, but haven’t seen a copy of it yet, so it all feels very unreal at this point – did I really write a book?! Maybe I just dreamt it…

Well now, thanks to my friend Jana and her camera, I have proof that it really did happen! Although it doesn’t yet appear on their website, a search for “June Gilbank” on the in-store Barnes & Noble catalogue computers reveals:

That’s Paper Chains and Garlands: Easy-to-Make Decorations for Parties, Holidays, and Home Decor by June Gilbank! It really exists!

Not long to wait now – I hope I’ll be able to show some pics from the book itself shortly! I can’t wait to finally be able to show you the result of all the hard work I put into it. 🙂


  1. Congratulations June! How exciting for you! I’ve seen your work on Folding Trees, so I’m anxious to get a peek at this book myself!

    Thank you all! Just a note: I don’t think you can preorder it yet from the website (unless I’m missing something).

    Also, I hope to be able to sell personalized signed copies in my shop, so you might want to wait for that! I have a very nice signature 😀
