The bookbinding secrets of The Beatles

The Songwriting Secrets Of The Beatles’ is a fascinating book. But too thick, too heavy and too clumsy. What to do?

  • ‘Pull’ the case binding
  • Scan and print additional title pages
  • Split the book block into three equal parts
  • Find some pictures for the covers
  • Edit them in Photoshop, rich in contrast and black and white
  • Design the covers and print the covers on linen
  • Rebind the now three books
  • Add useful ribbon markers
  • Make a box with the original photo

Now you have three handy books.

Guestbook beach house Terschelling


A guestbook for a house on the isle of Terschelling. The beach house has a characteristic appearance of black-stained plank facades. This inspired me. For the closure, I used an age-old piece of marsh wood. I discovered the wood along the coastline at the isle of Schiermonnikoog.
