I created a series of four books from the collection of stories commonly know as the Arabian Nights. After doing some research I decided to only include the stories that were included traditional collections. The stories were set up in different styles; some being a simple short story and others extending to a chapter style. I set up guidelines that were able to bridge the differences in structure. After working with a printer to print the contents, I hand bound each book using a coptic style binding. The end result was an eye catching book that had unique proportions, yet still felt welcome in the readers hands.
