Hand made artist's books
Last night I spent my time cutting out the covers for some hand made books I want to have ready for the opening of 'Dirty Linen'. The little book pictured is only 13 x 14 cm in size. It is called 'Little Monas' - (Mona Lisas) and it only has about six pages.
You can see how I have constructed the covers. I have used embossed wallpaper. Once the cover is dry I will fold and paste down the edges and cover what's left with a heavy marbled paper.
Make two covers, arrange torn prints in order, produce title page. Use a punch to make holes for ribbon.
