Charles Dickens Book

This is a book I made using the photographs I took over the christmas holidays. The idea behind it is that all photo albums tell stories using phtographs and all books tell stories using words so why not combine them. I found a copy of Charles Dickens christmas stories on a book stall and I had the idea to add another storey to the collection that was made up of photographs, the storey of my christmas day. I used the techniques of sewing the photographs in between asetate and then sewed them around the spine of the book so that neither is damages and you can still read the book. I think this idea has worked really well and I intend on making more of these.
