I'm now in a lull in the development of my Bathymetric Book. This project is embedded in the rest of my life, and most of my other projects have strict and swiftly-approaching deadlines. Although I don't have much time to devote to it at the moment, I am gradually developing the content, collecting options for the final structure and materials, and envisioning my production process. 

In the meantime, here's a look at my current prototype, in which I'm scribbling my thoughts on how it's shaping up: 

This version is laser-cut and bound in folios with a Coptic binding; it has a hard cover and a magnet closure. It lies flat when opened to any page, which is an improvement over my previous binding. I especially like the way the hard cover encases and protects the delicate pages and exposed binding inside. I also like the laser-singed edges.

  1. I like the spare, clean, accessible look of the newest edition of your project. Still, there is something about the intersection of the tight scientific focus of the data integration necessary to produce the pages and the hand cut & colored pages themselves when coupled with the hand binding that is appealing, too. Looking forward to more.
