We just can’t stay away from The Book Design Blog when looking for innovative and inspiring bookmaking ideas. One example is designer Amber Hulme’s tactile publication inspired by French philosopher and theorist Michel De Certeau. Featured here, this book is designed to be read through touch rather than sight – adding a whole new sense to the act of reading.
Another featured example from The Book Design Blog is ‘Stitching in my Own way’ a retrospective of embroidery works by late artist Iris Todd. Featured here, this book (of which there is an edition of only 330) aims to lend a sense of depth the the page, showing the viewer how the works were built up and revealing at times the reverse of the embroidered works on the reverse of the pages.
