Create 3 copies of a 6”x9” book with 16 pages plus covers and inside covers, using my selected poem drawn from a hat.
I struggled with finding a balance of imagery. I didn't want my chosen external imagery to overpower the imagery created by the poem itself.
I juxtaposed the tactility and vibrancy of hand-rolled ink, collage, and the motif of hands, versus the emptines and distance in the space and placement of color blocks and text blocks.
I was really happy with the precision of the alignment and color of the edges on the physical book. I used the inside corner of my desk shelf to make sure the spine and corners were aligned as I assembled the accordian.
