This is the book I made for Andrea.

Years and years ago I made a book for Tracy and one of the things that happened it I gave Tracey a pile of folded signatures and she drew on the pages and assembled the order she wanted the book to run. This is significant because if you are an artist and you are using the book form as art work this is slicing bread before you wrap it.
The artist is able to have total control of the books contents.

Andrea’s book was made up of different weights of paper, it had lot’s of varieties of paper and most excitingly it had the ‘prints’ she had made and rejected because of flaws. Have you seen the cost of paper! I can’t think of a better use of ‘waste’ than having a book made up of it. I was taught to calculate for 5 to 10% loss in each colour run.
Its a great book because of the contents not the cover.
