Monday Muse -Exploring Structures

Structure from Above 
Folded Tab Page

Page Modifications

Projected Edge
The week has been busy with work in the bindery done in fits and spurts. This Slot & Tab proof of concept features large slotted pages with smaller tab pages folded on themselves to provide opportunities for cut-outs, fold-outs, and/or contrasting projected edges. The scrap materials used for fabrication were inadequate. The larger Slot sections [black] need to be of heavy Bristol and the folded Tab pieces [kraft] of a stronger thinner material like Elephant Hide. The benefit of making proof of concept models is to discover where the problems occur and what materials and techniques might correct them.
