A New Book: Political Promises

I have completed 8 copies of Political Promises. It is another open edition, so I will produce more as required.

Once the book is opened, all the parts may be stored in the plastic case.

I prepared all the tear strips first. Here are all the printed strips,

and here are the green strips for the largest (yellow) envelope with the perforations made and pre-folded. (You can read more about the process here.)

The book is assembled in reverse order: from smallest envelope to largest.

The sealed green envelopes above each have a smaller yellow envelope inside.

There are five envelopes in the completed book.

Here is a fully opened copy from the back.

After going through the process of opening all five envelopes one is, of course, left with nothing.


In other book arts news:

I had lunch yesterday with a couple of local members of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild. I gave each of them one of the small yellow envelopes that are at the centre of Political Promises. Susan Mills handed out copies of a poster promoting her podcast, Bookbinding Now. (She had some posters left after CODEX.) Here’s a picture of David holding my copy.

In news that isn’t book arts-related but certainly involves story-telling:

A filmmaker friend of ours currently has a fund raiser on Indiegogo. You can check it out here.
