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.

April 18, 2016 - Introduction

Hello Everyone,

Well, it turns out I jinx myself, I had another emergency come up last week.  Nothing serious, just inconvenient.

So, putting that aside, April/May book is going to another Hedi Kyle book structure - the Pivoting Panel Book.

Here are the photos of the demo book I created:

The overall dimensions of the book are approximately 8" x 5 1/2" when closed, 8" x 42" when fully open.

The materials you will need are:

2 -  8" x 22" sheets of heavy weight paper.
2 -  8" x 5 1/2" sheets of gray board (or davy board)
2 -  9" x 7" sheets for the covers
2 - 7" x 4 1/2" end papers

The topic for this book will be "A Quiet Landscape".  I'm needing some calmness after the last few months.

Next week, I'll be back (hopefully with any luck) with the construction of the page panels.

Until then,
Happy Book Binding,
