Finally something new! Making books covered in paper is tricky but it looks really good when it’s done and I love the feel they have to them. Here’s one with a lovely paper with hot air balloons. :)
If you want it you can find it in my Etsy-shop. Perhaps a christmas gift for someone special?
Here is the first of the hand-books I’m now making and which will be up on Etsy and Ezebee any day now. I will make them in different colours and have some great ideas for halloween-themed books so keep a look out after that. ;)
An acquaintance asked me to bind the collected works of Robert Baden-Powell who founded the scout movement. He had printed all of the books out and wanted it to be real books instead of just lose paper. It was quite a poject and it was a callenge to make the covers since I’ve only made reliefs in two levels but now made three levels in each picture plus reliefs on the back of each book. I’m very happy with the books and the client is too. :)
After a great week I once again made myself depressed by drawing and hating what I managed to get down on paper. Instead I made a new black journal (to fit my mood). Can’t say I feel better though.
Look what my friend Ninni sent me! Aren’t they amazing? I can’t wait to use them on a book in some way.
