First I chose the inside cover of the book. I first noticed in the online version that at the corner of the page, there seemed to be red ink seeping through onto the page. Only while holding the physical book in my hand, I realized that the pages have been inked on the side and the ink sometimes “spilled through” to the inside of the pages. Next I chose an illustration that I really liked while scolling through the book online. Needless to say, the illustration was even more detailed and precise in real life than I thought.
When I looked at the book physically, I noticed how the illustrations are always glued in and never directly bound with the other pages of the book. This was not visible I the electronic pages, has they are always folded out to be photographed. I can imagine that this is because the illustrations were not from the book printer but from a painter, and these pages often didn’t follow the same book format. Sometimes the drawings and illustrations were very large, so you had the unfold the paper about five times to reveal the full image. This equally creates empty pages (folded up drawings) while consulting the book, which also weren’t visible in the electronic version.
