I posted about my Berlin zines a while back (they’re still not really zines) and I am still not done making them. It took me ages to cut all 160 sheets of paper then folding, gluing, pressing and finally sewing. I have 4 of them done in time for the Bristol Artists Book Event this weekend, I will be there on Saturday with UCLan Drawing and Image Making!
Dimensions for the book: 18 x 16 cm, roughly 1 inch in thickness (I like to mix my units.) It’s a double sewn accordion book with 44 pages on each side, so 88 pages total (lucky number.) The book contains photographs that I have taken during my trip in Berlin and most of the photos were taken whilst being lost in the city. They kept telling us that our destination is just around the corner but it never was just around the corner and more like an extra hour walk.
One side contains touristy attractions and buildings, the other side contains their street art, which is my favorite side.
You can just about see the sewn thread here.
You can also use it as a slinky.
It’s an edition of 10 and this is 8/10. I’ll be selling these for £20 each.
I submitted my Berlin zine for Cafe Royal’s 2013 Project and was accepted!
The private view was on April 16th at the Hanover Project Space. The show will be on until May 8th. I managed to take two photos during the private view, there are better photos on CR’s website.
Bookshelf containing great books/publications. I still haven’t managed to go through all the books yet. You can see my book on the bottom row, sixth one from the left. The funny thing is, my book got rubber banded, haha, or else it would’ve slinky-ed down the shelf. Really makes me question if I should have packaged/presented it in a different way. I have to admit that’s my weakness some times…
