8.5x11 inch photo book // 44 page with 84 black and white images. Printed on 100 lb paper, perfect bound with a nice, sturdy, 130 lb, matte cover that I dolled up with a spray paint stencil (more on that below).

 

This book is a second edition of one I self published in 2019. I made a few changes, including the cover design, but other than one photo switch-out and a correction on the spelling of a town name, it's pretty much the same. All photos were made with my Pentax 67, medium format, film camera. 

 

I like to add special things to the books and zines I make so that there's on more level of personality- something I add with my hands and is tactile. I do a lot of stencil art so I have artist grade spray paints on hand. I wanted something simple, bold, and fun so I cut out the shape of Texas and gave it some quick shots with metallic silver and dark gray spray paint. Each one is different since I do them all by hand. 

 

One of the books had a mark on the white front so I gave it a little spit of spray paint and ended up really liking it, so the front also has a smattering of paint- almost like you want to brush it off! 

 

If you're worried about the odor of a spray painted book, I have found that it dissapates within a few days. If you really jam your nose to the back cover and inhale deeply, you can probably still smell the paint though! Don't do that!
