A Longer Book of Horizontal Ideas

Another accordion structure, again made from mostly horizontal images. And again not paying any attention to page width, which does add some excitement when it comes to bind it. Some pages act like pop outs, some pages are not the same height  and some pages break the accordion structure. Some of the pages have words and poems from my notebooks. The covers, which have a spine, are glued front and back. Next time I will glue only the pages to the back cover. Love this experimenting. This book ended up being 7.25 x 9.5 in. 24 pages with 4 inserts.

  4. Hi Liz, we have been away and then away from computers when home, so I have just had a lovely long wander thru your recent posts - what a collection!! I love the water, the sand, the sky, the rocks; the long books are gores and the conversations continue! The books seem like such fond memories...
