Book Making, General, Printing

Following On – 4th October 2021

After I had allowed my prints, see my last blog, to dry I folded and/or stitched them into books.

I had been following thoughts of ‘Subject to Alteration’. These books and their printed plates were designed to have alterations from the very beginning, it wasn’t something that evolved over time it was all in one go. So a following on from ‘Vulnerable to Alteration”.

See Above for ‘Subject to Alteration I’

Number 2, with an extra layer of silver print in the centre
Number 3, with the the silver print throughout
Number 4 with the centre pages coptic stitched together

The covers were the same design but with different, painted and monoprinted papers and machine stitching.

I had always seen these books laid down on a surface, peaceful and quiet, the  covers being full of colour, but hidden at first glance.

And my reading pile, somewhat diverse this time!
