For my design for print I am planning on making a book, binding it myself and screen printing all of the pages inside it. I thought that screen printing all of the pages inside the book anyway would be quite time consuming and complicated, but also binding it myself will be hard. I thought about the pages and how they will be arranged, this will take planning before printing, therefore before designing the content for my print book I decided to book into a bookbinding workshop, this will allow me to see how to bind my book after I have printed, also it will help me to see how many pages I need and how I should lay them out for printing.
The Final Book;
There are different materials that can be used for the covers, there are many samples for you to chose from, some of which are water proof and wear proof therefore it will last a lot longer than the other materials. There are also a lot of materials that aren't very durable, but they are really nice, and if you are careful with them they could work really well, but if you get glue on them in the process you will have to start again as you won't be able to get it off.
I am really glad that I have done this process, as it has allowed me to see how the process works, also I have seen how long it takes to bind and how you can't bind within a couple of days of printing using a screen, or 2 weeks of printing using digital methods. This means that I will be able to plan my time better when it comes to printing and binding. I have also seen some examples of books that have been purely screen printed, and this has made me see how effective this process looks and made me more determined to do this for my project.
