Book-Making 17th NovemberPosted: November 18, 2014
Yesterday we were looking at making books out of the mark-making samples we had been experimenting with for the last three weeks. Helen showed us two different ways of folding paper to make books, one being folding the paper to create a spine, and then binding them together with thread; the other being a series of folds to create a four page book.
I really liked these little techniques, making books from found and recycled papers, which you could then use as a sketchbook, or from previous work as a way to display them. It’s quite interesting to mix papers to create different textures, as well as using coloured papers as different grounds/surfaces.
