Paul Ryan’s exhibition Rebound, had designed a small publication of notes and sketches about the experience of caring for, grieving for and sometimes seeing the return to health of those close to him. The pages of the booklet were three-hole-sewn with red thread.
The sewn binding on this publication is very appealing, it gives a beautiful hand crafted touch to the design. The hand crafted binding echoes the hand written notes and sketches that are to be found inside the book, whilst also the name for the exhibition rebound, is communicated in this booklet, because his original book of sketches have been reformed into a new book. Seeing this book of notes and sketches made me think we could design a booklet that has our development processes inside, instead of a showcase of final outcomes.
