Above is the front of a botany deco with its "obi" to keep the sleeve shut. Pictures of the rest of the deco are below the fold.
I'm always on the hunt for interesting constructions. I saw this deco's construction in Creative Correspondence last week and figured that it would be perfectly suited for a sewn paper deco I've been wanting to make. The botany deco is a trial run. There are four envelopes on hinges attached to a protective sleeve. Inside each envelope is an ATC back. The construction, I hope, will make it difficult to accidently much up someone else's work, and be able to accomodate 3D elements (Why people glue those "jewels" on a page in a flat book with no room in the binding is beyond me. Respect le livre, people!). It's also fun to get a book with an unusual construction.
Below is the rest of the book. It was putzy to make but rewarding in its fussiness.
