Super 8

Process

Created from a single A1 sheet trimmed, folded and hand bound, with excess paper used as a belly band.

All layouts were designed as full scale paste ups, reflecting the analogue nature of the subject.

The glyphs and page numbering system in the book came from markings on the body and focus ring of a Braun Nizo S800 Super 8 camera.
