tested out chain stitch binding and coptic stitch binding which I might possibly use for my book need to consider the number of pages I have and the paper weight that I’m going to use in order to decide what binding would work best
will look into japanese binding and see how I could manipulate it to fit my concept better
Sings of use suggest a useful book. This aging process is entirely natural, takes a little away from the book, and should be celebrated. Of course, such wear can only occur if a book has been designed to last. If all books were designed to break apart on first opening, we would be denied that beauty.
Letterpress: New applications for traditional skills by David Jury
A very delicately-made book. I like the idea of using wood for the outer-packaging/box/holder for the book as it has taken an element from the context and incorporated it into the design. The illustrations and visual are also very delicate. It must have took a lot of patience and time to do the illustrations/visuals and box-holder.
