Content

A line or two of your favorite poetry, prose, or inspirational quote along with your illustration
(collage, drawings, photo, letterpress–whatever suits your fancy).

Structure

  • Making Handmade Books: 100+ Bindings, Structures & Forms by Alisa Golden, pages 89 and 90.
  • Size is 3” high x 8.5” wide, to be read horizontally
  • Single unfolded pages. Because these are single sheets, you are encouraged to decorate the back side of your page, but you are not required to do so.
  • Leave 1” on left for binding, therefore 7.5” for image and text
  • Soft or hardcover options for your complied book
  • There will be Japanese stab binding options (simple to complex) for your compiled book

 Required Paper

Canson Mi-Teintes 98#, any color (comes in pads of variety of colors–can order from Dick Blick and others; Artisan has single sheets)

Before the compilation meeting in December we will provide you with details on options for creating your book cover, suggested materials, and options for recommended stab binding.
