I made another book! This time, it was my final for a photography class. All of the images were taken with a pinhole camera. The negatives were developed by hand in the darkroom, then contact-printed and put into the book— the geometric shapes are part of the photograph, not drawn onto a positive! Altogether it’s about 5x7”, sewn and bound by hand with Canson Mi-Teintes paper, with all the illustrations and text in white gel pen. I’m still not sure of a name, but I’m thinking about “Insignificant Geometry.”
School/life has been kicking my butt lately. Here’s some little pixels I did during class today.
More book wips!
1) Gluing the superstructure onto the binding
2) The sewn signatures + endpapers before the superstructure was put on
3) The signatures, endpapers, and cover board laid out on a draft of the cover fabric
4) ~workspace detritus~
5) The first page of the little info document I typed up full of all the lyrics, what pages they go on, and the steps needed to complete the project
WOO It’s on its way!
More WIPs of the Hazards of Love book! I’ve been trying to take more photos, but honestly calligraphy is not terribly exciting! I’ve got until Monday to bind it and do all of the illustrations, ha ha hooo
Hopefully my next photos will be of the actual binding (visible in the last picture, but just barely) and the cover fabric and such.
I did up a little design document for my Hazards of Love book project to help me visualize the color scheme and figure out what I’m going to do for the binding. The red stripe is meant to be a paper band that slips off before you open the book. Fingers crossed that I can actually finish it all in time.
