Collection: Research

Book binding was fun, but it was rather difficult and my sample book didn’t give off the right feel, or showcase my work the way it wanted to. So after deciding that I didn’t want to bind my own book and instead make it with Blurb, I looked at a few layouts of books and magazines that I particularly liked.

I particularly chose these pages, because they’re very unique and they have a good layout of text and image. I learnt a lot from this research, as I realised that I don’t have to have all my pages exactly the same and that it’ll still flow nicely.
Some were full image and others had smaller images, which worked well. Others had text to the side or text on the image.

I would like to apply some of these techniques to my actual book and so now I just need to think about what layouts I’ll use for each page and what it’ll consist of.
