Little Spines is a yearly publication containing stories and poems from the Creative Writing students from RMIT. My aim was to create a contemporary, stylish publication on a low budget. The style of binding I used (Japanese Stab binding) has an abstract resemblance to an actual human spine visually, and also shares many of its characteristics; being quite ornate and fragile, yet extremely crucial, and vigilantly holds everything together.
Way of grouping and organising the books. Maybe they should all have coordinating covers (or even just coordinating paper sleeves or wrapping paper) to cover the clashing styles underneath and instead just shows the title and blurb. Means I won't have to dilute any of the designs to conform with the others and can keep them all equally bold and cultured.
