In order to gain inspiration for this project, our project leader (Chris Glynn) managed to book us in to view the University’s artists books collection.
During this visit I found so many interesting methods and layering of papers and medias that I had not seen before.
One book in particular that stood out to me amongst the collection was the book called ‘Sinbiba’.
The reason this book stood out to me was the layering of papers, almost creating an ‘onion skin’ effect. I found it captivating not only due to the aesthetic effect the paper offered, but also the feeling of the paper changing throughout the book. The changing of papers made me curious as to what would be on the next page, and the page after that and so on.
Due to the intriguing effect the layering of paper gives, I would like to experiment with this method within my own novel.
