I have completed most of the printing that is essential to creating my book. What has been so lovely about doing the printing is that I now have a large wealth of beautiful printed imagery to play around with and use if I want to. I have been working hard on the typography for the book and I have been including printed elements and printed punctuation. The type was always designed to be quite extravagant and wild but hopefully I have not sacrificed readability in favour of style. Here is the typography as it currently stands along with several compositions that I havent posted yet.
This is page 1 which opens up from the centre to reveal a large pop up rockpool panorama. The circles are holes that show prawn and shrimp who move when the page is open. The imagery surrounding the circles may not be necessary I will see how it looks when assembled.
The next bits all pop out on folds from the bait ball page and contain small pop up pieces.
The last page where the prawn is swallowed by the plaice leaving his bag and umbrella behind.
