DIY Project #6: Make Your Own Linocut Picture Book

3

Along with our La Sardina DIY camera we’d like to present several DIY projects to inspire you. Our sixth project is a creative tutorial on how to make your own linocut picture book by Joseph Chiang.

Don’t you just want to flip through the pages! If you want to make your own picture book, read the full tutorial on our very new DIY project page.

But what has this to do with the competitions section? Well, we’d like to try something new – complete the steps, then take one of your beloved analogue cameras (or the new La Sardina DIY camera), document the results and submit the photos once they are developed here. Please don’t upload any digital photos, don’t submit anything unrelated to this project (as much as we’d like to see a close up of your nostrils, this is not the place) and watch out, the limit is two photos.

This is for fun and we’d like to present more projects like this in the future. See them all under diy.lomography.com. Let us know in the comments what you think of this and how you like this very project. We are looking forward to hearing from you!

    Hmmm. You have to scan that pics to post them here obviously... So: If you take a picture on film and scan that to post it here - why not scanning the book directly to post it? It is as analogue as the Photo taken on film, right? :D Sorry, I'm just fooling around, but in this case I do not see the direct need of taking a seperate pic of it as one shall only take pictures of the end result but not the Process...
