Book making

“Maybe you are a graphic designer who wants to escape from the virtual to make something real”

So today I spent a couple of hours starting the book ‘How to make Books- Fold, Cut and Stitch your way to a one-of-a-kind book’ By Esther K. Smith.

I made a rough version of each type that I learnt to make this afternoon. These include Basic Instant Books, three versions of instant accordions, self hinged accordions & also basic covers with spines.

Even though this is only the start of this project, I’m already excited to see the work I could produce from these techniques. It really is nice escaping the virtual world and having a hands on approach.
