At last... photos from the final projects in our Art Journal Series
Each of these unique books is full of pages and pockets and envelopes and ephemera just waiting to be discovered.
Students combined various paper types and sizes, as well as other materials like the glassine library pocket shown on the right, above.
The final pieces are amazing!
We used 5 x 7 matte board and frames to create the covers.
Envelopes and other little pockets were sometimes sewn right into the binding
Maps, music paper, collage and painted decorations were included.
Here is another glassine pocket decorated with rosettes painted on book pages.
Here is an example of one of the accordion fold sheets incorporated into the design.
Here is a double page foldout with a vintage book chapter heading used as a decoration.
Detail of the pages.
Here is a quick pamphlet fold book made in one evening by a very creative student!
The finished project gave students a vessel in which to keep adding and creating!
One more interior picture with saved fortunes and a library card pocket detail.
This was a long project and many people were unable to come back and complete their interiors. If you are one of these or would like to begin anew, please give me a call and we can collaborate.
I really enjoyed facilitating the process, witnessing the compositional choices and reveling in the collective satisfaction from creating such amazing pieces. My students are fantastic!
Have a great week
I look forward to creating with you soon.
