The Making of My Handmade Photobooks

Beyond, Fine art photography, Photography, Travel

This year, I introduced my first handmade photobooks to the 40th Edgewood Heritage Festival and 211 Art Gallery “Around the World” show, both were held on November 12th, 2016.

An accordion photobook that consists of 5 to 7 photos is a perfect medium to present a short photo essay.  It also serves as a nice display piece that can be stored like a book. After many researches on materials and how-tos, and a visit to Book Doctor in Dallas, Tx., to get materials for book cover, I went ahead with the production. I made two photobooks, “North Shore of Belitung Island” and “Food Vendors”, which photos were taken during a trip back home to Indonesia this summer.

“North Shore of Belitung Island” consists of 7 landscape photographs which leads to the decision to make a “landscape” orientation book (finished book dimension with cover is 10″ width x 7″ height). The “Food Vendors” exhibits 5 photographs of people in small food businesses in “portrait” orientation, thus the book orientation (finished book dimension with cover is 7″ width x 10″ height). They are now displayed at the 211 Art Gallery in Athens, Tx., and available for pre-order (email to inegaleri@gmail.com).

Here’s the steps I went through to produce my first handmade photobooks:

1. Print the content on 13″x19″ premium archival fine art and photographic digital paper.

handmade-books-161109-169_0009

2. Cut paper according to design dimension. What I have here are 19″ x 6.5″ pieces for the Belitung Island and 13″ x 9.5″ pieces for Food Vendors book.

3. Score the paper with bone folder accordingly to create a crease for neater and easier folding.

handmade-books-161109-169_0010

4. Make hinges to connect the papers with glue to create the accordion effect.  Use pH neutral glue made for book binding and paper projects.

5. Cut board and linen for the book covers. The board’s dimension is 0.5 inches bigger that the book’s width and height, the linen’s is slightly bigger than the board. Wrap and glue the linen to the boards.

The Best Kept Secret of East Texas

Mrs. Lee’s Daffodil Garden

Around 1954, over 1,000 acres of land near Gladewater, Texas, was transformed by the land lady, Mrs. Helen Lee, into a secret garden.  Out of her love to the land, she converted what used to be a gravel pits into a daffodil retreat with a 5-acre lake and a 3-acre pond, called Lake Josephine – named after her mother.  It took an entire boxcar load of daffodil bulbs from Holland and about 40 workers to make this daffodil garden.  It is considered the best kept secret in East Texas.  A replica of pioneer style log cabin was added to the site in 1954 overlooking Lake Josephine as a quiet place to enjoy the beauty of the land and its wildlife. Following her passing in 1984, at her request, the park has been opened to the public in spring.

St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans

Architecture, Beyond, Beyond Upper East Texas, Black and White, Fine art photography, Photography, Travel

This is one out of three St. Louis Cemeteries, the oldest surviving cemeteries in New Orleans.  It was established by Royal Spanish Land Grant in 1789.  The St. Louis Cemetery No.1, at the corner of St. Louis and Basin Street, was originally twice its current size and located outside of the city limit. All the graves are above-ground vaults which believed to protect the bodies from flooding and was also a common practice adapted by French and Spanish culture.

The tallest monument in the cemetery belongs to The Italian Mutual Benevolent Society.  The tomb has space for a thousand remains for the society members.  It is a way to lower the fund of burial for individuals.

Some of notable citizens of New Orleans were buried here.  The most visited now is probably what is believed to be the tomb of the Voo Doo Queen, Marie Laveau, who was rested in her family tomb.  The tomb is covered with cross marks put by people who believe that it will make Laveau’s spirit grant a wish. The living family members consider this as vandalism.
