Finished and Bound Journal
I bound the journal in the texture of a journal from Skyrim to help with the immersive elements of my work, attempting to make it look as authentic as possible. I stuck with the font of Viner Hand ITC to keep the personal journal feeling to the book, and I also bound it by sewing down the middle of the leaflet with some chunky brown threads, making it look rustic and purposefully done, to fit with the aesthetic of the handmade objects within the game of Skyrim. I have put a filter on it for my blog to demonstrate how I would ideally like it to present itself, and I also feel it looks like it could be an in-game image if it weren’t for the scanner’s shadow input. I have also smudged some of the pages and left finger prints on the paper to again fit with the aesthetic of the handmade rough journals and books that you find in Skyrim.
