How it looks now
Side Binding (Forgive the rattiness of this particular model. It's been in my purse for a few days).
Inside with leather placeholder
So, with Thanks to my mom, dad (and his secretaries), I made a ton of copies on a last minute day-trip to the hometown (Thanks for squeezing me into the Fiat, Kathie! [and Thanks Adam, for squishing underneath my painting for the whole 1.5 hour ride home]). My mom bought me a hole-punch, I got some [ridiculously expensive but] beautiful thin leather, and the folding, punching, and binding began. I’ve done somewhere around 15 of them. But hope to do another 25 before Show-time.
This may or may not be the last installment, as I’d like to leave the artwork (to be added) a surprise.
Once again, these will be available for purchase ($10) along with some of my paintings (+ maybe prints?) at my booth during the DEAD SOULS event on November 13!
As promised (to all three of my readers), here’s the next installment of my adventures in the NO FRIENDSHIP book production. With great thanks to Aime and Scott (especially for scouring their apartment to find the printer cords) it now exists in real-life, outside of a hard-drive, in all its typo’d, paper-wasted glory.
Here’s what it looks like at this moment. Yes, those pages are doubled. Yes, I entirely messed up the formatting! No, I won’t be going back now. If I use recycled paper does that make it okay?
So, anyone have any ideas for DIY binding? I have some in mind… I want to be cost-effective but also efficient as I’d like to make a whole buncha these. If you have any of your own ideas please let me know!
