As I’m getting ready to start teaching again next Wednesday, September 14th, at the Palo Alto Art Center (Class Details Here), I’ve been enjoying making prototype books in preparation. My current favorite recycled material is the pretty floral cardboard on the outside of Kleenex boxes.
Here is the before photo:
And some after photos:
The covers are from the Kleenex boxes, the striped paper and signature paper are scraps, and the embroidery floss is leftover from another project. The binding is a side pamphlet stitching on accordion fold pleats.
And, since Greg and I both have colds – I’m going to have a lot more of that nice cardboard to play with!
