Print and put together two prototypes of your book for the MINI- CRITIQUE which will begin at the start of class. The book mockup will be handed around to the students for examination and suggestions. You will not make a verbal presentation of the story or content for the mini-crit.
Here is the setup document supplied by the Design Lab. (click on the image)
The bleed ranges from 0.25 – 0.50 inches.
NOTE: Please check in with the Design Lab regarding how much time it will take to print out your books once the document is submitted to them. It depends on the complexities, document, paper, process etc.
1. Print out all pages and put a version of the book together before you come to class. Please make two copies, you will give the two other groups their own version to examine. The printed page by page prototype should show us how the book will appear upon completion. It does not have to include the final binding technique or the final cover materials. It DOES have to show the cover design, colors, etc. in another format. For instance, if you are making a plexiglass cover and it is not ready, show us a heavyweight paper version. For the signature(s) or inside pages you can present a stapled version if you can not complete the hand binding.
2. Update and add any written or making reference completed in the last week to your project’s Drive folder you shared with me. I will access the latest written version of your story to share with Professor Lanteri.
1. Sketchbook (dream drawings from last week)
2. Your two book prototypes
No need to bring your laptop. All pages for your prototype should be printed out ahead of time. Also, you won’t have to carry your laptop with you on our trip.
After the mini-crit, we will take a trip to the Museum of the City of New York. Please bring your sketchbook. Here is a link to view the current exhibitions. http://www.mcny.org/exhibitions
If you have questions, please let me know.
I look forward to seeing your first draft of the book in print.
