first edition

i made a small run of these FAILED MEMOIRS books.
this first edition is of 15 copies.

here's some details in list form:
-i sewed all the bindings by hand, no staples.
-16 color pages, a title sheet, and a hand-lettered cover
-each copy is numbered out of 15
-the booklet includes all the book covers in the previous posts plus a couple others i didn't post here.
-i think i'm gonna make another larger edition with different covers next week. those will be sold at a couple shops and a gallery.
-these first copies have the special bonus in the form of a small ink drawing i'm going to stick inside each one. it's gonna be a drawing of a face. it's a surprise.



this is the cover. the title is written in ink by me on each one.
the cover is made out of recycled/repurposed cut-up leftover 2009 calendars.


this is the title page. you can see the image from the leftover calendar on the inside there.


this is the page where i write the edition number. this one is 5 of 15.


this is what a couple of the pages look like.


this is what the centerfold looks like. you can kind of see the thread binding.

UPDATE: SOLD OUT.
i'll let you know where to get the new edition, sans bonus drawing.

thanks for looking.
thanks for the support.
peace
