Here’s a glimpse of a book which I designed and made as a gift to celebrate the wedding of some brilliant friends.

I invited friends and family of the couple to share tweet-sized messages and photos on twitter, or by email, in the run-up to – and during – the wedding. Afterwards, I collated all the (digital) contributions into a (hand made) book. New media presented as old.

Making the book was very satisfying, and I’m really happy with how it turned out. It was printed using an inkjet printer onto recycled papers, and the book was trimmed and bound by hand using a simple Japanese book-binding technique.
