Calling all creative artsy thinkers!
I want to create a book for one of my best friends as a Christmas present. She wrote me notes everyday when we were in high school, and I just recently found them. I want to put all the notes into a book for her, but I want to keep the original notes for myself. Any advice as to how to do this to make it look classy?
You could take photos of the notes using a nice DSLR...Put the note somewhere interesting or beautiful?
You could scan the notes but that would be a little boring?
You could replicate the notes by hand i.e. handwrite them then bind your versions of the letters together.
scan the notes and upload them to a site like blurb or one that makes books.
any self publishing site can help you with this.
it sounds like a wonderful gift!
Rewrite them yourself. And then if your original notes are perhaps crumpled or folded, do the same to the ones you rewrite to make them look like actual notes. Then put them into a binder or make them into a book. Try to copy her handwriting too if you can, I know some people who can replicate handwriting just by sight. Hope this helped.
Scan each note into your computer as a graphic. Use a publishing program to create a page for each note--include pictures (photos of the two of you, if you have them) to make it more interesting and personalized by you. If you enjoy scrap-booking, you could always create each page using different design layouts and your added touch.
look into printmaking techniques/classes--seriography or even cool letter pressing stuff should help to aestheticize your letters!
If you can use an OCR scanner so the text gets created from the notes, all the better. Nice gift idea.

I am curious if people still write by hand or has everyone switched to the keyboard permanently? I still write by hand. I take notes, write on the side of my books, I often write on anything on which I can write in order to remember a though (my memory is terrible at times). I also write...

Viruses: Living or Nonliving?A virus is a very unusual kind of organism. For one thing, its structure can hardly be called a cell. It does not have the usual parts of a cell. So for you is it a living thing or nonliving thing?
