Anatomy book...

237 Favourites

Custom ordered book based on journals from top of my offer. Book cover is not changed, difference is in printed pages… Maybe don’t look like hard work but start point was pdf file with low quality, yellow pages of book from 1881. Converting it into higher quality jpg, manually cleaning yellow colour from all pages, prepress for printing pages in proper order, hand torn page by page and ageing on 611 book pages was take a while…

Whole story and more pictures on:…

It does indeed sound like a lot of work, with an excellent looking result.

Now I need to see what books I have from 1881....  :)

Very fine artwork ! I worked in a old books shop, I never saw books like the ones you made but I'd love to ;). Interesting vision of "neo-old books" x3 !
