I'm currently a freshman Graphic Design major going to school in Philly. I went to the Eastern State Penitentiary a few days ago and took some pictures. One of my professors saw the pictures and suggested to me that I use them to create a book as an independent study project for next semester. I think this is an awesome idea and a great opportunity to do something I enjoy and add another piece to my portfolio. What I'm asking you guys is for some help in a few of the aesthetic and logistical aspects of making this book. I'm going to be using these pictures for the book, plus or minus some other ones that I have yet to decide on. I also need to edit the pictures. Now, on to the things I need some help with: 1) What size would be good for the prints? I want a decent-sized book. 2) I'm planning on making my own paper for parts of the book. What materials would make good paper? 3) What materials would be good for the cover? Something thick and sturdy is a must. 4) What picture would you suggest for the cover? If I think of anything else I'll add it in. Thanks in advance!
