For the Suger book, the structure I chose was a tunnel book. I folded two lenths of Canson paper into concertina spines.
Arched openings were cut out of the pages
A stained glass window was painted on Fabriano water colour paper with gouache.
The book was constructed with the painting at the back and the pages were attached into each fold of the spine on one side, and then the opposite sides were glued.
The concertina on the open side was cut off and glued down and the opposite side left with two extra folds to be filled by two pages inserted at the front of the book
The front and back covers were made and attached to the back panel and the concertina at the front.
The next post will feature Book 5 Mackintosh.
