Growth and Decay Custom Binding
For a project on Growth and Decay, I studied the changing properties of three subject matters, fruit decay, human growth, and a combination of plant growth and vehicular decay that I has seen over time on a van overgrown with plants near where I live. I wanted to make a book in which these three studies could have their own sections that could fold out, while remaining connected on the spine. To do so, I made two spines. One, forming the hard fabric-bound cover, and the other, made from 300gsm paper, in which each strip of paper could fold into. Below is a run-through of the book.
