Another of Hedi Kyle’s structures – the flag book! One of those ones that once you see it, it seems (almost) obvious, or straightforward at least – in a way, and yet that’s only in retrospect of course – there wasn’t the precedent when she came up with so many of the structures she did, so how did they come about? Anyway, this seemed like it would have been fairly easy to reverse engineer, but it was nice having instructions to follow – although I didn’t follow them completely – ended up not actually putting a cover on, but for a practice/learn the structure piece it didn’t seem essential. It had a nice sense of movement and almost endless possibility – changing the number of layers of flags, the size, figuring out content placement, etc. But again, the question of structure and content working together and not being a distraction came up for me. So much to explore!
