You will be making your first book as a loose personal historical document. Consider chronicling some aspect of your interests, heritage, past landscapes, dreams, hopes, fears, or facts in an artistic, non-conventional way. You may use image and/or text in whatever form you like. Think about cropping images, panning-in close up, zooming out, showing different details as you flip through the pages. Do images span across an entire spread? Bleed to the edges? These may be xeroxed copies of original artwork, or perhaps the originals are bound into a book. Perhaps the book form itself is sculptural or autobiographical. Consider collages, drawings, paintings, or type-written, digitally created images or hand-printed if you have the resources and know-how.
