Project Description

The Anniversary Book was a gift for bookbinding teachers, Monique Lallier and Don Etherington. TThe album, created in a silvery palate to reflect this “Silver” anniversary. The book and its box are infused with Monique and Don’s loving connection and home, where they create and share so much together and with their students. For the pages, we used ink jet printing on cotton paper and utilized a sewing-less technique opens entirely flat at 180 degrees, allowing the photos to be fully exposed. For the album, we printed a 3-D image of their house onto traditional Japanese Awagami paper. The box’s inner spine bears a quote, adapted by Don from its original: “For those who observe the impulses of their own mind.”
