I’ve been making leaf prints with my gelatin (Gelli) plates to celebrate all the beautiful Fall colors I see around me in New England. Here’s a structure I made called Winged Book by Alisa Golden to showcase some of those prints.
I really like this binding because I love any variation on an accordion book. If you’re going to try this book, I have a few of suggestions to make this book successful:
- Make a mock up first so you can understand how the different pieces fit together.
- Score all your lines before folding.
- Use a lighter weight paper for the pages because it become bulky with all the folds if your paper is thick. I used a 98lb mixed media paper and that was almost too heavy.
Here’s the book when it’s closed:
I created tags from my leaf prints and placed them inside the pockets.
