docphot project

a while ago we were given a project which involved working with a documentary photography student to create a book of their photographs.
after lots of changes in design and messing about with the layout to fit the images in nicely we decided it would be nice to have something else within the book, so we decided to would create a few subtle illustrations which had to work well with the images. these didn’t end up taking too long to do and they ended up fitting really well with the photographs.
i sent my book off to a company called blurb and here is what i got back;

specifications:
dust jacket
oatmeal linen hardcover
charcoal endpapers
proline uncoated paper

 

 front cover

inside image and illustration

double page image

introduction page

oatmeal linen wrap

dust jacket front and back

 

i’m really pleased with the outcome of this book. the quality finish is what i’m pleased with most. i wasn’t expecting such a well made finished result. i’m happy with the layout as well and the quality of the prints on the paper. i’m considering adding something in to the back of the book but we will see how it goes!
