An elaborate phone manual by Vitamins Design.
“Most phones come with flimsy manuals with complicated language and jargon. These books, which can live on a bookshelf actually contain the phone. Each page reveals the elements of the phone in the right order, helping the user to set up the sim card, the battery and even slide the case onto the phone.
The second book is the main manual – the phone actually slots into this and becomes the center of attention. Arrows point to the exact locations the user should press, avoiding confusion and eliminating the feeling of being lost in a menu.”

Do you know how to make homemade Book Covers?
There’s lots of ways you can make homemade book covers, either by altering a cover which is already on the specific book/journal (which is simple enough, just re-cover it in book cloth, fabric, or even just sturdy wrapping paper) or you can just make your own book from scratch.
If you’re doing it entirely from scratch, you need to make the cover after you’ve bound all the pages together into one bookblock, as that will give you an indication of how wide to make the spine etc. I recommend you check out this simple guide to making a basic hardcover book using greyboard/thick card. Step 6 and onwards tells you how to make the cover itself. If you find these instructions confusing, you can also check out countless guides on youtube, but I find some of the tutorial people a bit irritating so prefer to work from diagrams! Below is a photo of the first proper book+book cover I ever constructed- the book cover is made with book cloth, which I then painted over with acrylic paint and silver ink to make it more personal (sidenote: you can also run book cloth through inkjet printers, meaning you can have virtually any image on your covers, all you need to do is attach a piece of book cloth with 2 strips of masking tape down the sides onto a sheet of A4 paper, and viola!) My first book didn’t turn out perfect, but I felt really proud to have made it with my own hands, and you really do get better at it with practice. Best of luck! x
