Book Arts Tuesday-The High Line & Giveaway
Making little souvenir books gives me a chance to relive travel experiences in the studio and then have something to keep as a memento. I often make several to share with my companions. Last Wednesday my mother-in-law and I joined the New England Wild Flower Society on a bus trip to New York to the High Line, the former elevated freight railway that has been made into an incredible park. We were joined in the city by my son and had three delightful hours together exploring on our own as well as guided by one of the gardeners. The design of the park and the plant materials chosen are exquisite.
I wanted to print the book as one sheet and decided to make a 16 page meander book. I started the book process by making a model and figuring out the placement of the images on the pages.
I laid out the pages in Indesign,
printed it on my Epson Workforce 80, and then cut the pages and glued on covers.
Here's the book:

Leave a comment before Thursday 10.4 at midnight and be entered into a random drawing for one of the little High Line books.
