Glen showed us a quick and easy binding technique creating crosses on the spine,
I haven't glued down the end papers yet - not sure whether I should do this or leave the book 'undoable'. What do the book binders say about this??
I wasn't greatly happy with my printmaking results [a hot day and water based inks didn't help], but I played with text for the first time, and stuck with circles and stumpy straight lines. Loved the text - snippets of words and the numbers appeared serendipidously [is this a word?].
Once home I did my usual thing - doubled the number of pages, made the book into a 1 to 10 text [8 pages for each number], and made a cover.
It is 13cm x 9.5cm x 2.5 cm
I have been playing with rusting, dying and staining sheets of paper [tea, inks, 'bruised' textured paper] and have ended up with some fascinating and beautiful results - many have been used in this book.
Here is a selection of pages....
Great fun - thanks Glen.
