I have created another prototype to explore how the pages and structure would all come together. I am pleased with this way of doing the cover as it allows that cut out element and a peak into the intricate paper cutting within, but still holds its structure and protects the book. I also feel this binding method allows the binding to become part of the design and complements the waves, rather than just solely being a means of holding it together.

I also feel that seeing the pages all slotted in and in order has given me an idea of the flow of the book and I think the randomly dotted nature of all these little waves works perfectly to catch all types of people’s attention and regular intervals.
