The Art of Bookmaking

By • Nov 17th, 2009 • Category: 26th Story, Books

Abigail Uhteg documented her summer internship at the Women’s Studio Workshop with a video of 3,000 photos she took over the course of printing, binding, and signing 35 editions of her book, The Complex of All of These. It took two months from making her own paper to letting the ink dry on her signature. Abigail explains the process in some of the photos here.

    That is amazing! I just started some Christmas projects with making my own books to give away. How incredible! I never realized how involved the entire process is.
