Book Proofs

I've been working on some experiments with different bindings for a project that I'm working on. Here are the book proofs. This one is a coptic binding with two needles per sewing station, which makes a stronger spine. The thread was a little bit short towards the end so I couldn't complete the stitch towards the end. Since it's just a proof, the interior pages are just toner transfers but I'm planning to edition the pages in lithography. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Another one of my experiments, just a proof as well. It's going to be part of a poem series. Fragile spine for a fragile book. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Cutting the characters out of book board with laser cutter.
