My other dear friend A and I decided to buy ànd to make him presents. This very beautiful book, which is totally designed and written by Yvette van Boven, is what he will get for present when published in a month. Tomorrow he's getting two booklets: this winter edition and this same-sized and same-styled booklet that we made. About all we know about him, all we share and how we love to have him around. It's hard to express incredibly precious things like that on paper, but... I hope and secretly think he likes it!
The making was great fun: to work in a team with A, to layout the booklet and last but not least to design the cover, inspired by the very beautiful paper cuts of Yvette. Btw, in this case there was no paper cut at all, but the cover grew out of scanned handsketches, that were composed in Photoshop and in the end provided with a digital shadow.
For those who want to know: we had it printed and finished with a hardcover right here (just like these books).
