Book Binding

I'm not a writer, nor do words come easily to me. For my final dissertation I chose to write about a substance that personally resonates with me and is omnipresent in (western) society; sugar.

I love books. So I designed one. It is a study about sugar; examining the impact of the spice on our society in terms of psychology, history, sociology, tradition and finally advertising. This required me to do a lot of reading, research, analysis. It was a real challenge to gather all of the information, edit the content and write it in my own words. But highly rewarding.

Finally I bound the book by hand. Then I embossed the title onto a doily and used it as the cover.
