Photo Album Design
The most crucial function of the spine is to provide a place to bind the pages together. No spine and a “book” is simply a block of paper.
“That part of a book which is visible as it stands closed on the shelf; not uncommonly called in antiquarian parlance the backstrip, and sometimes called the back.” — ABC for Book Collectors
This is a special artist book( photo album) design. After I tried to bind the book in different ways, finally I found this way. Usually spine provides a place for the title and author to be displayed, so the book can be easily identified. I treated book spine as a special space for design and cute them in different shapes and added color/texture.
