Here’s a sweet demonstration on how one can make an impression just by making thing personal. No iPad needed! It’s Johan Rosenmunthe’s Transmutations home made book. Simple print put together in a hand made wooden case in a limited signed edition of 100. Nothing superficial here, just good ol’ prints!
I’m currently in the process of updating my book or lack of it. My work has been presented on iPad as of late and the reaction has been good. When iPad1 came out, it was cool and fresh. Nowadays, more and more people make the iPad their main portfolio. This actually gives print even more value. It’s now easy to self publish a book through print on demand services like Apple, Blurb and the others. I personally like books that you can reorganize. Having actual prints that you can reorder and change given the client you are presenting to or to follow the flow of newly created work.
