Lucky in Red

March 27, 2011 § Leave a comment

I was invited to the wedding of some of my parents’ friends. It was an opportunity to test out my newly acquired camera. I took these photos back in September. The layout was finished shortly after but the lack of a decent printer, time and head scratching about the binding lead to the delay.

Originally I wanted the book to be perfect bound so that the images that spread on both pages would be able to be appreciated flat. However I had also printed the pages on A3 pages to be folded in half, to give the book a weighter feel and thicker appearance,as it was important day after all…. however all this meant that the pages bent out of the binding.

I ended up doing a stab stitch binding  glued the book in to the cover to a bit of super heavy cold pressed watercolour paper, no inpapers or anything fancy just a simple wrap around cover for a bit of colour.
