Handmade Books
Tactile and Traditional
I look to the past for knowledge and inspiration. In the process of bookbinding, I'm adding a bit of traditional feeling that's so often lost in the digital world.
The final photographs represent my poetry book Fractures. The poems share a common thread: each focuses on geology, whether directly or in language. I patched together most of the poems from a scientific book on plate tectonics and geology. I left them mostly in their original state, with little editing. Some of them incorporate elements of concrete poetry, but I tried to keep it as minimal as possible for the overall consistency of the book. This book was set in Fournier at 8 points. It was completed in September 2010 and printed and bound in December of 2011.
