Do I change course - Dorothee Weinlich
After arrival, the studio on Langeneß was quickly set up. We began right away with creative writing. I led the exercise, everyone took part, I wrote too. Suddenly there was a question in my handwriting on the page in front of me: "Do I change course?" - Ambiguous. I took the phrase as the motto for my own artist's book this year.
The book has 64 pages. The three layers with 16 pages each are bound with chain stitching. The book cover is made of 1.5 mm cardboard with marquetry on the front and back. The cardboard for the marquetry is laminated in a thickness of 1 mm. The bookplate is covered with yellow-green bookbinding fabric. A small wooden panel is embedded on the front side. On the board is written with chalk pencil the book title "Do I change course?" On the back of the cover a river with a winding torrent is embedded. I chose this type of book binding because I wanted to create a stable and protective cover for my contents.
