In my WRTG 3035 class last semester, my professor arranged for the class to visit Norlin Library’s Special Collections & Archives. On display were handmade books from as early as the 16th century. There were Da Vinci sketches in giant leather bound book and small artisan books from the modern era.
I want to make my own interactive book with features and novelties similar to the books in Norlin’s special collections. I could work with mediums such as leather or origami paper. I was even thinking about having some of the story line written on a piece of paper inside of a fortune cookie.
Overall, I want the book to be interactive, dynamic, intricate, and beautiful.
