Soft facts

During the processing of the data, I gathered through the surveys, I was wandering how I could present this in an elegant way and with humility.
Although the graphs look like hard facts, I wanted to make them soft and personal.

One way was the use of washi (handmade paper).
Than I wanted to put my handwriting in it with the ‘facts’.
So every page has a second layer from thin washi where I’m now drawing the graphs on.

Eiko, the lady where I did two book binding courses said the books are really wabi-sabi * (I talked about this concept yesterday – 20th november). This was a great compliment for me.

*Characteristics of the wabi-sabi aesthetic include asymmetry, asperity (roughness or irregularity), simplicity, economy, austerity, modesty, intimacy and appreciation of the ingenuous integrity of natural objects and processes.
