Exlibris Elephant Stamp

I got this Exlibris book stamp for my birthday and I since I love elephants, books and stamps it was a really great present for me. I remember that my dad bought me one of those stamps when I was a kid and I stamped it in all my books back then. But I totally forgot about it, until I got this beautiful stamp as a present.

Pelikan booklet

At the suggestion of Markus Schaden I made a booklet out of my Pelikan series using a rather complicated (for me) folding structure. As a result you can create your own 3-image-spreads. At first I was afraid that this might be nothing but a gimmick, but it actually works quite well. Don’t ask me how many pages I wasted printing! You get an idea how it works in this short video:

Today I sent the book (my only copy!) off to Kassel for the Fotobook Festival Dummy Award 2012.


I made my first book with Blurb using images from my 22299 series. It’s a nice little book, but I didn’t allow extra space for the gutter (if the Booksmart software has a special function for this I did not see it). Especially on those spreads with one full bleed image on one page and a smaller one on the other the images are far too close to each other. I did not notice this in the layout. Ok, make it better next time. Obviously the sequencing could use some fine tuning as well.
You can preview the whole book here (On iPads it seems to show only in black and white – I don’t know why).
