MiT book, Sheila!

OK, I've been working away at binding Sheila for the last couple of days. With 12 books completed, total Needle Death Toll stands at 5. I go in and install the show tomorrow.

Anyhoo, here are some photos of the book in progress. I chose the gray-blue liner, and here's a print that's been tipped in on the page, and I'm lining it:

After all the prints are mounted and lined, the text block is clipped together, weighed down with a brick, and I'm about to drill holes for binding. I have a guide in position with hole locations marked:

And here's the finished book.

You know that they have fetish clubs for that sort of thing (. . . binding Sheila). You better be careful, you might get a bad reputation with talk like that. Your first sentence made me giggle like a little school boy.

The book looks beautiful. I still can't believe that you hand lined each of those prints.

Well done--russ
