This is a book that I made in Design class using the French stitch method. This book has 5 signatures and covered in a thick paper backing. This book is one of the final designs of my bookmaking project that I have been working on for the whole semester. Many problems showed up while I was making these books and I had to continue to find new creative ways to work around them. I struggled with perfectionism in this project because when I saw one issue with a book, I had to completely start from scratch. I worked a lot on creative problem solving from adding more pages because the structure wasn’t working, removing the book spine because it messed up to skeleton, and finding the right sizes for all of my work. Although this final work is just a blank book, it is significant to me because my next step is to create a book full of short stories.
