Ongoing book project



My project of turning 400 drawings into a book continues to progress. I reckon I'm about quarter of the way thought the pile. At the moment I'm gluing them together into sets of four or 'signatures' as they are known, for some strange reason, in the bookbinding world. After that they are getting a good old squash under heavy weight to flatten them as much as possible.

I'm using archival glue which describes itself as reversible. Have found this to be partially true. You can wash off any spills which is useful but if you've stuck it down like you meant it, the Red sea wouldn't unstick it.
