Handmade Book

Since the topic for IF is "book" I decided to post this handmade book on the history of the fan that I designed and illustrated. The history of the fan is briefly outlined in this book that mimics the structure of an actual fan. I've always been intrigued by items that are functional yet decorative and tell a story about the time and place in which they were created. Each of the twelve pages features an illustration and text describing a particular type of fan beginning with the Egyptians through the time of the suffragette movement.

 

Available here.
