Collaborative project

I have been making a book based on 10 walks on Dartmoor with a painter friend Judith Cockram - we've had really bleak cold weather and the book reflects this quite well although it was unintentional. The design and printing has given me headaches and was a steep learning curve but worth it in the end. It is A4 landscape with 4 signatures double sided - and it took me ages to figure out how to print this on my very basic inkjet printer but perseverance wins out 
I have sewn the signatures together and all I have to do now is the cover - I'm going to use an old Dartmoor map
I will post a photo of the finished book - hopefully at the weekend! 
Then I have to make another one for me as this one is for Judith and will be displayed at her degree show at Plymouth University mid June
