Tree Book

This Fall, I’m taking a bookbinding studio class. Bookbinding is a relatively simple process, but there are a lot of steps that need to be executed perfectly in order to have a functional, beautiful, successful book.

This book is the second rounded spine book I have done. I love nature and trees, and I wanted a book that conceptually reflected the essence of trees. I created by book with a vertical format to suggest the vertical nature of trees, and I constructed my book with materials the referenced trees, leaves, and bark. The text block is ten three leaf signatures sewn together over linen tape.
