Project Description

There was a horror themed gallery show titled, "It's Alive" celebrating the 200th anniversary of Mary Shelley’€™s "Frankenstein" and I wanted to enter. Having grown up reading classic horror tales from Lovecraft and Poe, I knew I wanted to create a book that was a compact retelling of "Frankenstein". I’d had my eyes on a vintage cigarette machine so I had the idea to create a very small book that fit inside a cigarette-sized box, allowing people to vend the book themselves. I developed an accordion fold book that fit inside a custom box designed to look like a leather-bound book.

Production Lesson(s)

Pre-planning and making lots of mockups is key when making a book. Determining score lines and dimensions of the folded pages is key, especially when making an accordion fold. ”
