|Join Two Flaps|
A simple Fold-Up Book made from four squares of paper. Fold the sheet in half both ways, cut a slit from the bottom edge to center, then score from top left corner to the center for the fold. Pull the diagonal fold inward then double stick tape the two loose flaps together to enable the structure to stand vertically. Double stick tape all four structures together then add front and back covers.
Note: It's easier to add artwork, text etc. before joining the page flaps or structures.
The feminine side of Florence came through the Bluegrass today with a soft, gentle rain that any real street photographer would be working. Were it simply a matter of walking out my door to work an hour on the street I would be doing so, but as a close-in suburbanite, I rarely make the effort, which in turn brings up the question of commitment. It’s actually a connection issue I find difficult to resolve.
Meanwhile, I take the easy out and hop online with a pleasant cup of coffee accompanied by a new post from one of my favorite book artist, the Spaniard Juanan Requena a snapshot artist who specializes in roughshod collaged photo diaries and similarly irreverent exhibitions of single images. Spain is an epicenter for the photobook allowing Requena to build a workshop industry around the notoriety of his first published book Al Borde de todo Mapa being selected as Spain’s 2017 National Book of the Year.

Or…how to make a post from another person's post.

This unique Accordion bind was approached as a study dummy…something had to be done with the prints that have been laying in the bindery for two months. The individual accordion leaves cut from letter size black kraft proved impossible for any semblance of uniformity. If in fact, I make the finished book the accordion portions will require a jig to ensure uniform registry. It's also difficult to present with images…the gist being…there are twelve color images on the extended right side accordion with twelve B/W images on the verso.
