Walk 1 again

I’m starting the daily walk again. Hopefully this time I’ll keep it going. Things are stressful now. Not least because this brexit nonsense is terrifying. Anyway, here’s a picture that I made on the journey.

Book 2 / 52books

I squeezed this one in today, the last day of week 2. It’s a basic single signature with cover, but it’s a variation from Bound that I’d skipped. I modified it slightly. Considerably increasing the page count in particular. I’m fairly pleased because it still worked, which means I’m beginning to understand how to tweak…

Book 1 / 52Books

On the run-up to and right through the holidays, I worked through a fantastic book on bookbinding called Bound. It takes you through simple structures and works up to more complex and interesting ones. I’d long been interested in bookbinding, having been taught a little bit about it at uni in the 90s.

I Never Know How to Start These Things

I really don’t. So here comes some stream-of-consciousness biography writing. I’m a photographer, a father, a husband to be ( very soon in fact – after 19 years of being with my partner), a gamer, a podcaster and a serial project starter. I guess, welcome to my blog? I’ve done these before, but more recently…
