South Common Haiku Binding Kit
When Paul Marion and I first talked about putting his South Common Haiku in print, I thought it was a perfect opportunity for me to combine my commitment to involving as many people in the creative process as possible and decided to design a DIY binding. We knew we were going to have a launch event. I designed a binding that needed minimal tools (scissors and hole punch) and that could be easily assembled in the correct order. It worked. We had about fifty people of all ages and abilities at the Edith Nourse Rogers School in Lowell on Earth Day 2012 and everyone left with his or her own copy of South Common Haiku.
We now offer it to you as a Binding Kit which contains detailed step-by-step directions illustrated with photographs and everything you need except a pair of scissors and a hole punch. You can purchase one for $20. postpaid at my etsy site. You can read more about the project here.
