Today i made 60 of 100 booklets for Flesch Records. If i have ever been involved in a project that seemed doomed, it was this. The booklet looks very simple: six A6 sized pages with record stickers:
I have already shown you some of these record stickers. Harry Berkhout (the owner of Flesch Records) and i collect them and in the booklet are all the nice ones we could find. Here are two pages:
I cannot even remember all the difficulties i encountered making this 100 booklets. And all the time and money that i put in it. It took me months to make them! They had to be copied (full colour!) several times, because things went wrong: wrong paper, wrong montage. I will spare you the rest of the details.
Today was fun: i put 60 booklets together by hand. If you ever see one, you will understand the work it was! The other 40 will have to wait a few days, because my hand is sore from using a cutter knife all day.
I have a handful of booklets for those who want one. They can be bought at Flesch for 10 euro’s, but i prefer to trade. Make me an offer i can’t refuse!
Here is a great song by a band that i heard through a FaceBook friend, named after the singer, Imelda May:
