Some self-books made by previous students which I particularly like (probably because of their very simple but effective theme):
This book was about buttons. Inside were all prints of different button designs. The cover was made with a felt material which gives the ‘Button’ book a familiar textile feel.
This was a self-narrated diary connected via paper cup. Each paper cup has a different story and origin. The choice of presentation, in terms of layout, photograph style, font and paper colour etc, has a vintage feeling.
I can’t remember exactly what the story was about but this was a pretty small book. What I really like was the drawings in the chosen medium and how empty spaces were being utilised with the subject drawings to convey the storytelling. There was a long accordion in one part of the book and I really love how the composition worked across each page and in a long stretch.
This is an accordion book on grass; very simple but interesting.
