X Book with Gelatin prints
I did this by coating the reverse side with gloss acrylic medium and letting it dry completely. I then placed them back to back and ironed them with my Jonathan Talbot heat setting iron.
I haven't shown the cover here because I decided to add a bird to it and the medium is not dry yet. I will show it again when it is totally finished,
I will try this again but I will make my gelatin prints with the book form in mind. These were done portrait style and I think it would look better with a landscape style print.
This is a simple book to make really. The pattern can be found in the book Making Handmade Books by Alisa Golden on page 32. It is called the X-Book.
