This is a post about a photo album I made a few years ago.
Now of course, in the 2012 world of instagram, hipstergam, blurb, moo etc etc making a little book like this would be easy.
my friends, I made this back in the mists of time, in 2004 and I'm no designer, so although there was
probably a much better way of making this little book
took me a long time.
I also bound it by hand... printed, folded and sewed it up. I had a lot of spare time back then. I made it as a present for a friend but I ended up keeping this version as some of the page came out up-side-down.
The book is about A6 sized, and documents a camping trip. We used to do this camp annually and my friend who organises it would come up with a theme each year... so one day of camp would be spent in fancy dress.
The Wild West one included the Indians (sorry, am I allowed to call them Indians... is this all very un-pc?) stampeding the beach where the cowboys had built a (sand) fort. Well, kind of anyway.
Ooh, look at that neat stitching...
Two little Indians, and a camp cowboy.
The inevitable handstand competition.
Now I'm off to blurb to try out their software for a new book project.
