One of my current photographic aspirations is to learn how to print out my work and share it with others. I want to get my images on paper, and present them in a creative, crafty, handmade way that folks might enjoy them.
The stars are aligning for a certain project of mine to become a handmade book! I love books. Daughter and I became fascinated with how they are made last summer, and we learned how to make our own.
So this project will be made into a handmade book. It even has a recipient in mind- a friend/colleague who holds personal significance to the subject matter. There is even an occasion to give this person this book, as an expression of my gratitude and well-wishes. (I must be vague to keep it a secret, you see)
I cleared some space in my head this morning, by lounging in the papasan, and gazing out the window, coffee in hand. Now I have a plan on how it will be constructed. More on that later.
Above, there is a photo of all the thumbnails of images I have selected for this book. Below is a short video featuring some of them, as a representation of this photographic project, called Seasons of the Bloom.
Now it's off to the library to find that bookbinding book that teaches the binding technique I am looking for..... (-:
