Took a break from various design projects to color page 17 of the ROM Spaceknight: Remake Project. Check it out and see if you can help with this good cause.
I get asked this a lot.
Here are the specs: Individual issues (no trades), hand sewn, Art-on-cover (aka half bind), hand stamped text on spine, no page removal, custom table-of-contents, custom end sheets, and a robust “extras” section at the back of the book built as “signatures”.
I am nearing completion on a three volume set of Hickman’s Fantastic Four/FF. I will post detailed results when completed.
I have been away for awhile. I had some health issues to address and resolve.
While away I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do next.
This is one of two blogs I write.
This blog is dedicated to designing covers, table of contents pages, end sheets etc. I have decided to continue sharing images of what I am currently working on at this URL. In addition to images I will also be posting videos hosted on you tube.
The videos will cover a variety of topics. the first couple are essentially book reports or reviews of completed projects by other people.
I’d like to start a dialog to help/assist people with their projects. No charge. I am willing to share my knowledge and resources. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets talk.
PS: I am working through the emails I received while on hiatus. Be patient, it is taking longer than I anticipated.
Hi, I will be away until July 1, 2013. I will resume this blog at that time. Thanks! dpbanks
These past few months I have been tying up loose ends and thinking what I would like to do next and I have decided to relaunch Single Bound Studios.
It won’t be the same but it will still be focused on comic book bookbinding projects.
I have already started work on two projects for former customers and one project for myself.
Next Tuesday Tim Benson and I meet with H&A Media Group to discuss with them the building of a new site. They were the firm that built my previous Single Bound Studios web site.
In the meantime I will still maintain this blog (dpbanks.com) as place to share cover design projects.
