Encasing Structure's Content

This is a weekly blog that I have created with the sole purpose of creating a hand bound book once a month. I will be showing the entire process from start to finish. Although I would appreciate some mention of credit, please feel free to use and share any information found on this blog. The creative process rarely happens in a vacuum.

January 2015 - Week 1

I was a bit ambitious in thinking I could start this new blog right before the holidays.  Since it didn't work, I am starting again (this time for real :) ), and with a better understanding of how the entries should be framed.  So....

This month's book - Theme - Winter; Binding - Woven Codex

I decided to make my book approximately 6" x 8"

If you would like to follow along, you will need:

8 pages - 12" x 8" medium to heavy weight paper
4 cards - 6" x 8"  medium to heavy weight paper
2 tyvek strips - 12" x 1/2"
for the Cover 1 sheet - 24 1/2" x 8"

My theme is "winter" and I found this picture on Pinterest that spoke to me and I will use as inspiration for this book.  I'm going for the cold, frozen blueish-gray sameness of winter that has a stark, severe beauty to it.
