To start the conversation on small scale binding, I brought some of my mini books to show.
How did I end up with these? :P
My students could choose their own narrative and learned how to bind books using different techniques and materials.
We covered layout through a discussion on portfolio graphics and blog and website design –and used some color palette tools–
so for the final project I wanted to do something different and strange, inspired by an artist in the 70’s who created one hundred little books.
You can follow her beautiful work here.
I will post more pages from the little books once school resumes. I also (shocking, I know) have a little book on coffee quotes at home, bought in Italy few Christmases ago. I’ve been meaning to write a post about it, and now I will share it with you – and Anastasia :)
Also there were lots and lots of sketchbooks from my History of Architecture students (!).
If asked: ‘How do you take your coffee’?
I reply : ‘Very Seriously’
of the civilized world.
Sweet as sin.
The feeling you’ve had
this coffee before.
wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.
Hot as Hell,
Pure as an Angel,
Sweet as Love.
