Monday Muse - On Handmade Photobooks


Having now made a plethora of photobooks, the experience leaves me with a few pertinent thoughts:

1 - Have an interesting cover, with the title on the spine where the book structure permits.

2 - Control the number of pages.

Eighteen [18] appears the appropriate number of images for a casually read handmade photobook.

3 - Let the reader tell the story.

Resist providing supporting text, though I have noticed people enjoy reading anecdotes as an Afterword.
