Working 2 yards of print does take application!
Following on from my last blog and the idea to create a book inspired by bringing together my ‘half yards of memories’ books, of which I had four, hence the 2 yards, I completed my printing plates. All the designs from the previous books were scaled down and rearranged to suit a longer piece.
I printed them onto Somerset 250gsm paper
The two books were trimmed and the two shorter lengths at either end were cut
They were folded
I punched holes 1” apart all the way along each book
I applied red painted tissue paper to the reverse, you can see the light shining through the punched holes on the right hand side and I applied one side of the paper hinge. the two books are now under weights for the final construction stage.
More next time and hopefully the books will be completed.
