For Book Arts. Create a book in sequence inspired by past present and future. Each page has a number 87-24 and in years where something important happened there is a word- 87 birth, 01 high school, 09 move to California, 12 present, etc. This book can be read in the round, as seen above, or as a flip book, as seen in the video below.
My book in action. I recommend you mute the video as my camera picks up sound easily and my breathing is oddly loud.
