Children's Book




I wrote and illustrated in children's-book-fashion the love story of my husband and me. I made the book for our future children (I am expecting our first baby now). I wanted the book to be able to survive the destructive little hands of kids, so I made each page out of binders board. Because of this I could not use any of the binding techniques we have learned in class (no signature to thread in and out of). So I invented my own single-sheet binding.
