This is a 6x9 quarter-bound journal with two thicknesses of cream paper inter-mixed in the text block. Light brown Italian goats leather with decorative tooling and supported with a textured four cord spine. Hand sewn head-bands of off-white and royal blue. silk thread. Finished off with a blue ice vein paper that is coated with parafin and flows from the outside to the inside end-sheets.
Shoom'lah generously granted permission to use her logo image. Moiety Jean has given permission for the use of hers in this project, too. That will be used inside the album.
Anyone who has played Riven should recognize the tablet I chose to replicate. I couldn't resist the chance to add some shine with gold gilding. The cover is dimensional and I used clear acetate for the window opening that displays the logo image. It also adds shine to the piece, though you can't really see it in this photo.
BTW, this is not my Make One, Share One entry (MOSO). That's still being worked on.
An artistís book/publication which I produced a while back.
The text on the tag inside reads: A collection of teabags from the cups of tea I have had with friends. each is tagged and printed with the fingerprint of the drinker and the date. This is a meeting of the past and the future. When we cut the bags and let the tea fall to the bottom of the cup we cross our fingers in the hope that it lands in the right places.
The book was handbound and every piece is stained with tea. To view other pictures see my blog: [link]
I have just made some mini versions which I plan to give away on my twitter: [link]
I've folded these models on mother's day but forgot to upload the photo. Mother and child designed by Steven Weiss and folded by me from 1 square of kraft paper 20cm, pram designed by Roberto Gretter and folded by me from 1 square of kraft paper 35cm
For this assignment we had to create a book that prompts people to view/ read it at a specific time or enviroment. For my project I created case files for seven fantasy creatures I designed. Within each file is an information card about the creature and photos of their "sightings." I took photos of different locations around my school town. Then I illustrated the creatures within the photos through photoshop. The objective of the book is to encourage readers to visit the specific locations where the creatures were sighted.
I've been meaning to upload these for the past few months. This is a photo from my Masters degree show. I designed 6 trees, 3 native to the UK and 3 native to New Zealand. Each tree has 6 individual layers that line up to create the full tree.
Please see my Gallery for more photos of these trees and the final book.
The book itself is made without ink. I usually cut paper by hand but this was using a laser cutter. I did however cut each tree by hand as well. Not sure if i will upload them as i loved the burnt edge given by the laser cutter much more then the plain white paper.
