Our task was to create a photographic flip book; IE make a flip book using photographs. I created a simple background on some paper and photographed the movements of some inanimate objects to make them appear to move… in this case i used a paper dragon and a lucky waving cat.
Although the story told isn’t particularly interesting I still think the flip book has turned out OK and the binding has worked well. It is interesting that I have unused an oriental theme in my book and because of how the imagery was placed in layout the book had to bound on the right meaning that it is read left to right like Japanese books.
I have continued the imagery theme into the cover and binding by using red card and gold thread, colours seen in the creatures in the book.I enjoyed the binding process and will hopefully have more chances to explore this in the future.
