In 2018, I discovered the wonderful art of bookmaking as a possible presentation method for my photography. Tired of online photo sharing sites and social media, I had acquired a printer the year before. I really enjoyed trying out different papers and holding my photos in my hands again, like in earlier years of analogue photography. However, printing my photos just to put them into punched pockets or into a box in a shelf did not satisfy me for long. I then considered binding my photos into books and started research on bookbinding methods. I’m going to present some of my experiments on this page in the order they were created.
Generally I have found, that book making is not difficult, but one has to train oneself to be as precise as possible about measuring, cutting and glueing, to keep the work area and tools very clean and not to rush things. I was never happy with the results when I didn’t respect the above points.
