Mini Hardcover Book

November 1, 2011 at 5:53 pm 9 comments

This another mini book I made, this time with fabric and a hard cover. For the board in the cover and the flap I used pieces of a little gift box I got at a store. It had a flap with a magnet in it, so I used that part to make the book be magnetic as well. That way when you close the flap it snaps shut and stays. I also did two papercuts in the front and back.

I just followed regular bookbinding techniques to make this book, so If you want to make one then either buy yourself a book on bookbinding, or Google it.

    Thanks. I’m not sure yet, probably lists of things for reference or Bible verses.

      That’s a neat idea – you could write all the verses you memorize. It has to be something special for such a special book. You could draw tiny illustrations for each one too!

    Yeah, that would be cool. But I need to be careful and not mess it up! I’m going to do whatever I decide on in pencil first.

    I like your endpapers. Are they paper cutouts or drawings/paintings/prints on the paper? I also like the wrap around cover.

      Thanks! Papercuts are made with an exacto knife; I cut holes in the paper to leave the design, and then glued them down for this project. The green & blue side has three layers of paper, but the other side has only two.

    Just reread your blog–you said papercuts, but I didn’t figure out what it meant ’til after I made the comment above!

      Very creative! I’ve never tried to make a book with any type of clasp, but you have inspired me. The magnetic catch is perfect. Thanks for sharing.

I've done a pitiful job of reading this year. Do you have advice on how to read more (or watch TV less) amidst stress and a tired mind? Eternal God //
Not sure what that beep is at the beginning. Sounds like an alien signal, but that's only my theory. I've become inspired to increase my piano playing's finesse, but I still have fun banging out coffee-fueled tunes over lunch break. Fun times with the family this Fourth of July.

5 & 6: Supercool fishing mom Met two cool people and was a guest on the @womenintechshow podcast yesterday! The episode will be posted in 1.5 months. Let's pretend I'm standing in front of a rack of spacesuits and am about to be shot to the International Space Station in order to conduct research on interplanetary travel and meet a delegation of aliens.
#skydiving What fun it is to sit down and sketch the first draft of a new app mockup.
⋯✦⋯
This how I design an app or software feature:
⋯
1. Recieve a brain dump from the person who has the concept. Scribble these thoughts down in bullet point format in one of my many notebooks.
.
(My current notebook is red with a vintage anatomical heart, which might seem a little goth, but I just intend for it to remind me not to be an emotionless robot in life.)
⋯
2. Sketch draft of initial app flow. I don't pay much attention to details at this point. It's intended for a high level proof of concept to make sure the features' structures I in envision in my head will work in two dimensions on the screen.
⋯
3. Create the screens as wireframes in the computer. Polish as I go to add detail and fill in gaps from the sketches.
⋯
4. Then I send for feedback and we iterate. This is my least favorite part, as often complicated technical questions come up I have to figure out, and I have to think at a high level of detail.
⋯
5. I take the final wireframes and create "pixel perfect" designs with color and fonts and pretty layout in Adobe Illustrator.
⋯
Then we're done with the mockups! Magic accomplished.
⋯✦⋯
(Please add occasional half-steps for procrastination. To rejuvenate my mind, of course. Heh. That's what I'm doing right now by making this post.) Found in the mental disorders section. Misplaced? I disagree with anyone who sees introversion as a disadvantage.
