Yes, it's all finished.
I wanted to prove to myself that I could do the formal calligraphy style letters.
I wanted a 'classical look' for the presentation, and thought a standard book with turning pages might be a tad boring. Always wanted to try the 'flag book', so here it is.
Not being a 'book maker', I was confronted with major construction issues - tried the concertina bit 3 times before I got it right and nearly ruined the letters in the process.
I had a bright idea - I wanted to fasten the covers with magnets - hmmmmm
- this time at least 6 attempts to get it right.
Gave up and went for a simple slip cover instead. It was too big, so more modifications and extra layers of card.
Painting the ABC for the cover was the fun part - the rest was pure tedium.
...playing with the concertina,
...letters in place,
...book opened up with small slip cover,
...all closed up and looking very formal!! [Thanks Fiona for the cover paper]

Once again, this has been a great project, especially the sharing with others across the miles, and seeing how others' creativity is expressed. It's also great for me to have the opportunity to try new things without the pressure of exhibtions and public scrutiny.
