Foundation Degree Week 17 – Bookmaking

A few weeks back (let’s say around weeks 10-11 of the course, so somewhere between the 24th of November to the 7th of December) we did a printing workshop. During this workshop we also had a brief tutorial on how to make books.

So over the last two days (13th and 14th of Jan, 2015) I’ve finally completed my second book ever using a lovely faux-leather wallpaper as binding. Multi-section, strawboard hardcover. Now it’s a case of deciding whether to use it as a sketchbook or for something more dainty. Granted I was going to use a piece of red ribbon in the spine as a book-marker but being the fucking idiot I am I forgot about it while rushing to finish by 3:30pm.

Here’s a few pictures.
