Book design Project
Published:
Book design I
school project
The assignment was to choose a poet we like and make a book with his/ her poems.
I chose Reiner Maria Rilke and this is the outcome.
The book is handwritten, handbinded and the cover is also handmade by gluing pieces of bark on cardboard.


Book design II
I also chose a Romanian writer called Lucian Blaga.I find almost all of his poems very touching, but for this project I selected poems from the first volume he ever published and from the last one.
The cover is made out of white leather.
The first part of the book containing poems from the first volume was printed on white, porous paper and the second part was printed on a yellowish paper, creating the efect of aging.
Every poem is followed by a picture based on its meaning.The photos are all printed on transparent tracing paper.
Enjoy!
