Vowel Play

 

Space ParotThe text of this book is divided into two sections. The first section is poems and stories using only one vowel - A E I O U. A challenge to be sure. The second section is made up of Limericks with additional sentences. All are based on a particular sound: the long E as in WE, or the Z as in Zoo. The finishing sentences are mainly meant to show different spellings of the particular sound.

The Lunar Crew: based on the sound long U as in Shoot

 

 

coptic spineThe book itself is a multi-signature hard cover with coptic stitch binding. Signatures are a small group of sheets folded in half, then put in a pile. Coptic stitching creates a pleasing braid pattern on the exposed pine. The covers were made from matt board and covered with handmade jean bookpaper. The endpapers are letter pattern designs.
