Decalogue

This handmade book features the KJB translation of the Ten Commandments, inked entirely with rubber stamps. I wanted to create a book that could be unfolded in different ways to create different forms. The structure is meant to evoke the mountain Moses came down from, as well as the two tablets the Commandments were written on. I made the protective hardcover from scratch—precisely measured, cut, glued, embossed—the works.

The "Title" on the hardcover is a blind embossing with hand-set characters.
