And done! for the #areyoubookenough challenge this months theme was time. this is my book "1/20" and it is based on the publication "the splash of a drop" by professor worthington in 1895.
in this document a drop of mercury falling into a glass plate from a height of three inches is observed. the professor provided drawings of each stage of the drop sequence. the drawings represent what happened within that 1/20 of a second.
the background images for each spread are paintings that feature water. they are in the public domain and are from the collections of the metropolitan museum of art.
this book was digitally printed and perfect bound. i hope you enjoy!
Perfect bound applauds diversity and inclusivity with the rise of gender-neutral hair salons and barber shops. pioneered in london by hairstylists greygory vass and felix lane @openbarbers and klara @barberette_original, let's hear it for new kids on the block, chop chop, a new pop-up gender-fluid salon that has just opened its doors at old street station. image by @chopchopldn
Perfect bound celebrates 100 years of the representation of the people act (6th february 1918) which gave the vote to women over 30. in 1963, after joining the bbc radiophonic workshop, delia derbyshire, was asked to to create one of the first electronic signature tunes ever used on british television. it was ron grainer's score for a new science fiction television series, dr who. "i suppose in a way," she observed, "i was experimenting in psycho-acoustics." delia derbyshire, composer, arranger and electronic pioneer, born may 5 1937; died july 3 2001. photograph by bbc
An experiment. i printed and perfect bound my bible study workbook and notes for a study of hebrews. it's not perfect, as the name of the binding method might suggest. but it's cute and will meet my needs well. so much so i'm feeling kinda bad about using that recycled paper from my scrap pile to print the pages (they're bent and hole punched in random places and some of the pages have old printing on the back). next time i'll choose differently--if the binding method proves successful over the course of my study.

Perfect bound celebrates 100 years of the representation of the people act (6th february 1918) which gave the vote to women over 30. "i would rather be a rebel than a slave". those are the uncompromising words of emmeline pankhurst, leader of the suffragette movement and undoubtedly one of the most important and influential women of the 20th century. today, ms pankhurst, we salute you - and all those who have continued in your footsteps.
