El Bosque


Studio Oh! No! recently printed and hand bound El Bosque.
El Bosque is a small edition of artists books written by Danixa and illustrated by Beto Jet-o. The book was printed and finished completely by hand by Jono Sandilands.
The book pages and covers were first screenprinted. This time-lapse video shows the process of hand finishing the book: trimming, folding and binding using the Three Hole Pamphlet Stitch with red waxed thread.
In real-time the finishing process alone took between 10-12 minutes per booklet.
