A very interesting project has come up my stairs. A series of books made for presentation for funding a proposed television show about the Snowy Mountain Scheme.
The essence of the story revolves around one person – a German doctor. It explores the relationships that develop around this character but also tell of the unique community that worked on this huge project. Many refugees from war torn Europe, former enemies having to work together, eat and live together. Lots of tension but lots of healing.
A great story and the book is beautifully photographed to give a real feel as to how this television series is envisaged.
Hope the project gets the necessary funding. A great theme and a great project.
The binding will be a simple Oriental side stitch with a rough, canvas cover.
Because I have an art background I really love custom binding work where I need to design and create not only the binding style but the unique cover design.
