Long time, no see. I haven't been on craftster in more than a year because I have been so busy with school. But now I have time to make and post all of those things I have been dreaming up all year. I am a design major at ucla and because housing sucks, I havent had enough room to do any crafts or sewing until now, when I can get a double. But anyways, here is my final project for my typography class. We had to hand bind 40 of our best typographic designs into a well planned and thought out book. Each design is
for a book cover for oscar wilde's the picture of dorian gray
, and I wanted to make all of my designs pop, so I made a pop up book to go along with that theme. So here it is, I had a couple of glue/cutting problems since it was my first bookbinding adventure, but I hope I get a decent grade for it.
Here is the cover with the yellow band thingy around it (that comes off).
It has a pull out feature that changes the color of the title and shows my name and class and everything.
Here is a chapter divider. The letters popout when you lift the flap and there is another pull out feature on transparency that lists the specifications of each assignment, along with another transparency with my comments bound into the spine of the book.
Here are a couple of my type designs with front, back, and spine matter. The pages fold out from the spine of the book.
Here is another chapter divider. They vary from red, blue, and yellow on each chapter.
Sorry for the mediocre pictures. I was packing when I took them before I ran to turn the book in and I only had my desk lamp. But I hope you like them!
