Finally I’ve finished with my first proper project! I’ve really enjoyed doing it! I’ve chosen to make a memorial book for these beautiful women, that have been tragically killed by Jack the Ripper. I’ve focused on women, that’s why I’ve represented them as lilies, because most of them had children and had a really hard life. It is disappointing how people see them just as Jacks victims, but these ladies didn’t deserve it.
So this book is binded with a black ribbon, that obviously represents death, respect and sadness. I’ve chosen to make a really simple, black and white coves, only because there are a lot of things that is happening inside of the book. Inside: left hand side pages have a nicknames of ladies, the names how they were known by, framed with four lilies. The right hand side pages has Jack The Ripper letters, that has been sent to the police or Whitechapel hospital. Every letter has a red-blooded” lily on top.
There are few things I’m still not really happy about, but as my first ever book I made, I’m pretty happy with it!
