Earlier this year I undertook a Masterclass in bookmaking with Marshall Weber and Stephen Dupont. It was enjoyable, inspiring and challenging. I now have two books sitting in the wings waiting to be made. I printed first drafts over the weekend.
I leaned several things; my #emptyshops book needs to be much, much smaller, probably only 26 images after all. Which makes sense, seeing as it's an homage to Ed Ruscha's 26 gasoline stations. My next instalment of my phone camera photography could work as an A4 sized book. Sadly I ran out of ink for my iPhone book, which is tenthly entitled no photos has me quite excited.
Below a couple of screengrabs of each book.

Total time 12 hours, editing and printing.
