The binding is Ethiopian double needle coptic stitch and scrap leather for the covers. The book block is made from old computer punch cards I got from the work Christmas party last December. I cut the back pieces out of different leather and the watch parts are from my stash.
good idea !
Very neat!
Powerful! Thanks!
Very cool. This would look good with some old dot matrix print outs (old green/white striped paper) or if you could find some old typed pages for 80 years ago.
Or if you bound the Bible:<br> <br> <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Difference_Engine">http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Difference_Engine</a><br> <br> The Steam Punk Bible that is. I do admire the progression, book inspiring, movement, inspiring decorated book. I think feistydonut has hit upon a well suited theme in the genre.<br> <br> A few techniques I'd like to see employed would be:<br> Embossed, traced or branded mechanical patterns onto the leather.<br> Inset cutouts with a lower layer of patterns hinting at mysterious complexity.<br> <br> I'm really seeing a plethora of possibilities with this. And I'm not a big fan of Steam Punk normally either. Though I did read the book, but that was before there was such a thing as Steam Punk. I prefer Gibson's sprawl mythos personally.<br> <br> <br>
Very neat! I love this genre! so many possibilities!
