I apologize for the bad pictures with flash.
These are the final product for my 5-week crashcourse in bookmaking.
The books are made entirely from scratch using daveyboard, foam, corduroy, printed fabric, buttons, thread, canson brown paper, book cloth, strathmore drawing paper, photo album inserts, paint, and traditional typesetting.
The books open and close via a handsewn strap that is glued underneath the end papers. Each closes with a button.
Inside each has 40 pages of sketch paper that have been divided into four signatures and 5 photo inserts in the center. On the back page of each book is some handset type(!!) that reads "designs by kelly" with a stenciled little logo to match each book's theme. The books were sewn and glued together all by yours truly.
I don't know if you can tell from the photos but they are squishy in your hand due to the foam that is under the fabric.
Not the best books I've done, but they took a lot of time. So here they are!
