|Why I Paint, latest incarnation|
Tuesday, February 22, 2011
A short while ago I showed you the idea for a book I was working on, and how disappointed I was with the results. I hate giving up on an idea so it was time for a big re-think and behold a solution became clearer. Not enough white space. The images are very subtle in their colouring and needed white space about them, Taking the text of the image helped to, as did deciding to put the text on its' own page, giving it a lot of space and playing with the kerning. Building the book was really fun. I printed the pages in spreads of 4, trimmed them, glued them and folded them into a 400 in. long accordion, made the end plates, [don't know if that is the correct word] glued all together and voila, the latest incarnation.
