Things that make you go 'hmm'…
When I was in Paper Source, I spotted that they sold ready made text blocks which just needed ‘casing in’ (attaching to a cover). I bought some as I thought it would be worth experimenting with them. I had this idea and spent most of yesterday working out how to put it into practice. It was SO complicated!
This is an address book insert and I wanted to do something slightly different from the traditional type of book binding. It’s a very dull day today and it is really difficult to photograph the outside of the book. The ribbon looks much more orange than the apricot coloured book cloth in my images – it’s not, and the design on the grey paper is very subtle so in the dull light, isn’t showing up very well. I may try and get some better shots if the light improves later. Anyway, it gives you an idea of what I was aiming for. I think I achieved it but then I’m not so sure it was such a good idea in the first place!
Back to the drawing board!
