>The winged book – Le livre ailé


To make the winged book, I followed instructions from Making Handmade Books: 100+ Bindings, Structures & Forms by Alisa Golden. I found this book at my local art supply store and I could not put it down. It has so many great ideas to make books and journals along with excellent instructions and information. If you want to make your own books, this is definitely a good resource.
Pour faire le livre ailé, j’ai suivi les instructions du livre Making Handmade Books: 100+ Bindings, Structures & Forms by Alisa Golden. J’ai trouvé ce livre à ma boutique de fournitures artistiques et je n’ai pas pu m’en passer. Il y a tellement de bonnes idées pour faire des livres et journaux en plus d’excellentes instructions et informations. Si vous voulez faire vos propres livres, c’est définitivement une bonne référence.
Back to the winged book itself. I used papers from Stampin’ Up! but after folding the pages, I realized that the ledger patterns ended up on the diagonal. Not exactly what I had in mind. But since this is my prototype, I now know how to place and cut my paper to use it properly in this type of book. I decided to go for wrapped hard covers and love the effect. When closed, the book measures 3″ x 6″; fully opened, it’s 36″ long.
De retour au livre ailé. J’ai pris des papiers de Stampin’ Up! mais après avoir plié les pages, je me suis apperçue que le motif de feuille ligné se retrouvait à la diagonale. Pas excatement ce que j’avais en tête. Mais comme ceci est mon prototype, je sais maintenant comment placer et couper mon papier pour l’utiliser comme il faut dans ce genre de livre. J’ai décidé de faire des couvertures rigides enveloppées et j’aime beaucoup l’effet. Fermé, le livre mesure 7.6cm x 15.2cm; complètement ouvert, il fait 91.4cm de long.
