The Art of Letterpress: The Final Product
It’s turned to spring in Omaha! I’m so excited and ready for it. There was a thunderstorm smell in the air all day.
This post I have lots of images of my finished book. Looking back at these pictures makes me so glad I made these books, even though it was probably the toughest project I’ve ever taken on. It was a rewarding experience in itself.
I sat on the floor bent over my books and bound them by hand with a simple stitch, using a heavy duty thread which I first pulled through a block of wax in order for it to be strung through the paper more easily. I put up closeups and captions of each page. I hope you enjoy, it’s been a pleasure reflecting on my process and sharing my handmade book with you!
Next week I’ll be talking about my latest adventure as a design intern at Anthropologie.
