Hi guys,
So this semester I was in a class about paper and bookmaking. For my final project I was working on a popup storybook of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, but I had only done two pages (it's very time-consuming) and the project is due tomorrow, so yesterday I did this instead.
I made a stencil from David Bowie's face and cut it in a two layer format from different colors of cardstock. The margins of each page are different motifs.

The cover:

The red/orange page (margins decorated with sun and it's rays streaming down):

The orange/yellow page (margins decorated with fire and cloud of smoke):

The yellow/green page (margins decorated with grass and sky):

The green/blue page (margins decorated with the ocean):

The blue/black page (margins decorated with moon and stars):

Each papercut is glued down to half of an 8.5"x11" piece of handmade 100% cotton paper. The covers are also made of cardstock. I bound it with ribbon in a Japanese style binding, with the hemp-leaf binding pattern.

Also, sorry about the photo links. I am still too new to put them directly in my post.
