Book made for mid-term bookbinding class. Hand drawn mono-prints inspired by New York with Tortoise shell Japanese stab bind.
The brief was to make an autobigraphical book without text (with some exceptions) and to chose a suitable binding for the chosen materials. I used 75gsm sketch paper and black, red and blue inks. Each page is french folded and the cover is pages from an old atlas I found. I would like to redo the book by removing the cover and replacing it with something much bolder, perhaps a heavier weight blue or red with a title printed over.
