Bookmaking.

At my last 1-1 meeting with Colin Pantall we discussed making a short run of books. We also talked about making a dummy book of images. These past few weeks have been about collecting images, and writing text for the dummy. The covers were made using paper made for packing belongings. The image is a transfer of a silo photograph on cotton fabric. The fabric is hand torn to the correct size to fit the book. The ‘well handled’ look is exactly what I was aiming for, it adds to the well travelled feeling of the object. The spine is open with a combination of kettle and long stitch.
