a Holy-holey illustrated book of Esther
Published:
Brief
To create a 64 page book.

Rational
I made a papercut-illustrated book based on the Book of Esther from the New King James Bible, as this is a story that is close to my heart. The idea is also a play on words as it is a holey-holy book. Holey due to the papercuts and holy because of its religious background. It is then placed in a woodcut box.

This book was completely handmade, including the end papers, papercuts and section-sow binding. Machinery was only used for printing and cutting the wood. Illustration is done in Illustrator and layout using InDesign.
