The Adventures of You and I, a one-of-a-kind children book, customized on demand to each kid, printed individually, and hand-bound. Illustrated by Bryony and written with all the silliness of a 5-year-old by Armin.
Each book is produced off of a master Adobe InDesign file in which we turn on and off a multitude of layers to customize hair style and color, skin color, the kid’s favorite color, and whether they use glasses or not. We also do a simple find-and-replace to customize the text of the story to include the kid’s name. We then print it on our somewhat trusty Epson R1800 on Letter-size sheets of Mohawk Navajo. We chose an offset paper as we wanted something nicer, more unique, and (more importantly) way less expensive than specialty inkjet paper. We print one side, let it dry a little, then stick back all the fronts and print the backs. Covers are laminated and then the whole book is hand-sewn on a typical Singer sewing machine.
