The Book of Bon-Bons from Jan Dove on Vimeo.

The Book of Bon Bons came about as a result if my fascination with geometric puzzles. It is a reminder of the need for play and curiosity which are two well-tested paths to creativity.

I edited this video in collaboration with the students of the Beginning Video Production class at Berkeley City College.

Here are some details of "Membranes", one of the "Bon Bons" in this book.

The pages of "Membranes" are composites of my digital photographs, drawings, and traditional prints . These pages are constructed on the pattern of a visual puzzle.

Hand constructed using coptic stitch binding. Edition of 15.
