This week, I started and finished creating an artist book for ArtD 250. I chose to make my book about the Latvian midsummer’s eve holiday. The book includes a Latvian poem about the consequences of sleeping through this holiday and the perks of staying up all night.
I used calendar-style pages as the front and back covers because they represent the two days that the holiday occurs on. Since people need to stay up all night, the days blend together and the events occur inside.
