rather than study for my spacecraft dynamics final exam, i made some open-spine notebooks. all materials came from the recycling bin.
for this first book, the covers are postcard flyers, promoting some entertainment event. the inside pages are detailed drawings of my mech eng project, all printed on one side. i folded these papers in four, such that the printed side remains inside. the spine is poorly stitched, loose at some ends. i need more practice.
for the second book, the covers were cut out of a frozen pizza box. the inside papers are scraps from some photocopies i made. the spine was stitched more tightly, with a better finish.
i made these while listening to the new damien rice cd i got.
update: january 2008. during the winter break, i re-stitched these notebooks. posted here are the new pictures.
