Hansel and Grethel finished edition.

Having finished all the pages of the Hansel and Grethel book, I've put them together into an edition of five.

       Hopefully the second year illustration students will have enjoyed my workshop and be almost finished making their carousel books and we'll see them all together for an exhibition towards the end of January at the College Road campus.

                                I've learnt a lot making this edition of books....above is the cover design with a sample of 'witch's bind-all' sat on top...here's the bind-all...

I used the bind-all to plait to make the tie closure.

I've also been experimenting with forms of coptic binding...see next post!
