It's time to give a peek inside the book. I'm very close to being in a position where I can send a version off for test printing, and I've taken a few screenshots of some two page spreads, with a couple to show recent changes.
Here's the opening of the Spring section, showing the most recent changes to the borders. The slightly floral borders were meant to evoke echos of William Morris, but never really looked anything but naff, and didn't gel with the rest of the book. The borders follow a colour scheme which will be explained in a later post.
Here are a couple of the title pages, with maps, that start out each walk, one from the Summer and one from the Autumn:
Here's a spread from the second walk in the Summer section, showing how the text and images interact throughout this section.
And here's three spreads from the first walk in the Autumn section, showing the slight change made recently of adding thin borders. The borders correlate with the stanzas of poetry (so if a picture spread across two pages has two stanzas it will have two borders, if it has one stanza it will have one border). All man-made objects have been coloured in red. So far, I think this is the most successful section overall; it is also very nearly finished
