[for art] Review of work in June①



Hello everyone!

Here is 35℃ now in Kyoto Japan. It's very humid and hot.

Thousands of cicadas are making noise all day....


Anyway, today I'm gonna write about a pop-up book binding

which I did in the beginning of June. 


Firstly, I reproduced the same book then binded on trial.




At that time, I had forgotten to cut each four corners.

The trial made sense!!!


Secondly, I sticked all pages together, cut each side off and colored it gold.






And finally, I binded like below.




The most favorite arrangement is to put a Japanese WASHI on the first page to get reader invited in my pop-up art world.




I have entried to a pop-up artist book prize in the end of June, so I'll show inside when it will be allowed to.


And next, I'll write about making book case.


Bye for now.
