Pattie Belle Hastings

My interest in the book form has become one of a more practical mundane level rather than that of precious or exquisite object. I am inspired by device manuals, laboratory research journals, notebooks, textbooks, encyclopedias, and pamphlets. My working process almost always involves developing some sort of book as part of the project. My process also includes keeping notes, sketches and documentation of the thinking and development process. I have been keeping journals or notebooks, on and off, since I was a freshman in art school. Here are some sample pages and bindings from the past 10 years.
