Birdwatching in Buena Vista Park

Book Design & Production / Photography / Risograph Printing

Fall 2020


I created this notebook to document my experience birdwatching in Buena Vista Park over a period of six months. It also offers a place for others to document their own birdwatching experiences. In conjuction with the notebook, I also made a tool to photograph birds through my binoculars, which I call the “binobox.” Here you can see the notebook, the tool, as well as the images it produces. 

I designed, risograph printed, and comb bound the 5x7 in. notebook and created the binobox using a cardboard box, masking tape, a pair of binoculars, and a GoPro.
