Spring-break-fun activity: The story in a story cover as a textbook flyer
At the beginning of the year we divided our work and our trade show town with a CBAA. To be with them reminds us of the pleasure of single-page novels. So we created and ran one. It can be as easy to make a single-sheet eBook as to fold a page of hardcover in half.
Add a few more pleats and trims and you get a eight-page volume with an envelope, like the one we made. Things that follow are directions for some fast and simple ways to make your own textbooks, either with the history already in them or empty, just waitin' to be stuffed with the history, how it happens or how you invent it.
Here is the chart we used to make our book: Further charts can be found on the web. They both contain basic single-sheet accounting guidelines and guidelines for other, more complicated accounting frameworks. When you try a new shape of ledger, it is a good way to create a so-called copy of the ledger you want to create before inserting all the words and images, so you can practise trimming and pleating and better understanding how it works as a ledger.
You can also use this model of the guide to help you decide whether you need to make a larger or smaller guide, and you can keep it ready for your bookmaking enjoyment in the near term. In order to remind us how we do our books, we used a postmark with one of our favourite manicures in the library pointing upwards, and we stuck a large "C" on the cover:
Notice that in all charts the continuous line must be trimmed and the dashed line must be pleated to make the pages of the album. Using one colour and one sheet of sheet of papermaking, we combined all our images into a bright pink and printed the copy in deep shade of amber. After we printed a large backdrop solar, we added each shift to ours.
All pictures were reprinted in italics. Guy had to be aligned to read correctly when the ledger's collapsed. This guy is dyed and imprinted! Books are only one way to fill the books. You can resize the pages in the books (our pattern makes a quadratic one, 2 x 2 x 2 inch on each page) by scaling the page sizes of your text.
As an example, the pattern we use will create a quadratic page eBook, but it can also be rectangle - you just need to make sure that the width and width of each page are the same. Your designed and produced books can be unique or, if you produce several copies of the same books, as we can and do in the case of typography, they become an issue.
One way or another, you're a bookie now. You can also use a chart to help you make a empty page from any nice sheet of hardcover. If you don't have a history, this can become what you want. Select your document to start.
In our store we have so-called set-up or test printouts with which we verify the printout of every position of a bill. Overprinting results can produce beautiful colour schemes such as those used to set up this basic work. Here is the diagramm of the books or the template:
Here is the trimmed and pleated book: Stencil with the trimmed and pleated volume. This is a top-down look at the partly pleated volume to show how the trim can collapse the volume text. A further plan perspective in which the whole volume is completely pleated into its definitive form. One can see that the design follows the book: four pleats and one trim, in the centre the sizes are very different.
