A project to collect the posters of TD Sidell in a run of fifty hand bound limited edition books.

I've been designing and creating hand-collaged posters in the Boston area over the past several years (many of which are viewable here). Exploring a handmade process when so much promotional material is made digitally has been a rewarding experience that has allowed me to develop a unique style and push me towards new ideas. My latest idea is to collect and share this body of work, and I invite you to be part of this unique project.

Collecting my work in book format has been on my mind for a long time, but only after moving my studio into the bindery of Sonya Sheets did it seem like a realistic possibility. My vision to bind the posters in full color and at their original print size (11”x17”) pushed a regular published book out of my price range. Sonya’s suggestion of a hand-bound book turned out to be a pleasing alternative. After all, what makes more sense for hand made posters than a hand made collection?

After pricing out the cost of materials and Sonya’s consultation fee, I have settled on the price of $50 per book, with a goal to raise $3,200 to cover these costs. Between Sonya’s talent as a master bookbinder and my vision, our collaboration should produce a book that will be well worth your hard earned cash. Barring any disasters, the books should be done end of January/early February 2013.

By supporting this project you have the opportunity to receive a one of a kind objet d'art and support my future ideas and works as an artist. Thank you for being a part of this process. I look forward to getting

started.
