9.02.2016 Coding/ Programming in Java

So I’m getting over topology by developing a program for book stores/ libraries which is my final graded assignment for my Java coding classes. So I thought it’ll be nice to use it for my private library. It gives much so much joy…

materials
- blank notebook, preferably with a paper cover (x)
- pages from old/unwanted magazines (thin paper works best)
- clear self adhesive contact
- scissors
- glue stick
- ruler
- pencil

1. Cut out the parts of the magazine that you want on your book cover (areas of plain colour like sky, grass, water, fabric etc work well) and any words printed in a large font.

2. Straighten the edges of the magazine pieces and begin to arrange and glue them down onto the book cover with the edges overlapping slightly, making sure that the entire back of each piece is covered in a thin layer glue (otherwise you will end up with air bubbles under the paper).

3. Once the book is totally covered, cut up the words and find the letters you need to make whatever title you want. Make sure you are happy with the way the title fits on the cover, and then glue it down carefully.

4. Allow the book to dry completely and carefully trim away any excess paper from the edges before covering it in clear contact to seal the collage in and protect it from damage.

You can also use newspaper, copy paper, old drawings, origami paper, pages from old books, paper bags, wrapping paper, decorative tape and even fabric, basically anything as long as it is thin, relatively smooth and will bond easily with glue stick.
