Forest and the Axe Book

This was a test to determine if pages with only one of two punctures for binding will stay in place. Also wanted to test an accordion fold for the binding. I like that the accordion fold could offer a pause in the content. Definitely will use the technique in the future, maybe when binding the Axe book.

What is the Axe book? The quote is–The forest was shrinking but the trees kept voting for the axe. For the axe was clever and convinced the trees that because its handle was wood it was one of them.

Why the title Lost Memories? When you open the book it becomes apparent that all of the pages are without code or text.
Lost Memories 1

The code is layered with Lost horizontally and Memories vertically.
Lost Memories 2

Left approximately 12″ at the start of each section with the idea that I would macrame the lot together.
Lost Memories 3

Possible pause in content.
Lost Memories 4

Pocket on the last page of the book contains the title and a list of materials.
