A Synthesis, Part 4:

In my earlier posts, I told you about making paste papers and turning them into zines.

Here are the next two zines I made. They are the last of this group. But I feel pretty sure I will make more. If not with these materials, then something else. I really like this little booklet format.

Here are Chapters 6 and 7. Each book has a front cover and three interior page spreads.

Chapter 6

And guess what, this book has an image on the back cover. Why, I don’t know, I guess it just seemed to fit.

Chapter 7

      How nice to see you again! Thank you for what you said. I had a good time making these. There are lots of parts to the whole and making each one was rewarding and fun each on its own.

    Hi Claudia, Again, I’m not able to like or comment even though I’m already signed into my WordPress account. Oh well.

    Just to let you know, I enjoy your posts.

    I rediscovered Zines, which I used to do years ago with students. A newish group on IUOMA started for them so I’ve been Doing a few. Yours are an inspiration.

    Best to you always. Mim

      Thank you. I don’t know why you are having trouble with commenting, I apologize. But I am so glad to hear from you. The workshop I took reminded me of zines which I had forgotten about, and I had not made any in this format. I really enjoyed it, and especially since it was a multi-part process.

    I am really enjoying seeing these. They are so full of energy. I really like the fact Chapter 6 has a door at its conclusion, an exit at the end and an entrance into the world you’ve created.

      Thank you. That is why I put it at the end, because of the door. I really loved doing these, and the fact that it took place over a period of time to make all this work out. It felt good to take my time and not rush and let it evolve.

      Thank you. It was fun making the paper, I felt like I wished it were fabric. I wonder if I could get something like this actually printed on fabric, I know there are places that do it? Hmmm… note to self….
