I was really pleased with how my concertina book came out, the Gum Arabic Transfer made the paper crinkled and gave it the authenticity I was looking for. I enjoyed how the process relies on chance, it was very in the moment and gave the feel I was looking for. However, I felt that I definitely needed another area of story telling to the piece to actually read the symbols and understand the project the viewer needs more guidance throughout the book.
Also, I think I should mention the happy accidents I have been having with my NEW scanner. Below, are some examples I like how these are slightly distorted and therefore more modern as it contrasts against the traditional drawing really well.
I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes down during the group tutorial as I am still unsure as to if I like the overall book format.
