There's been a lot of water under the bridge since I last made a copy of Traveler. Pulling out all the jigs, dies, documents and components I was happy to discover this.
Stamping and debossing the pages
This detail shows the page numbering. Since Traveler is designed to accommodate both western and eastern book norms, there is no front or back. As a result, each image page has two index numbers; the arabic and kanji numbers ascend from opposite ends of the book, crossing in the middle. Here is page 34 (western) and 3 (eastern).
The detail also shows the debossed panel that contains the image. Geir's photos were shot on a wide variety of panoramic cameras resulting in a many aspect ratios for the prints. Templates had to be made for each different image format.
With the task of debossing image panels looming, I needed to clean my light table off. No horizontal surface is safe in my studio and there was a long accumulation on this table. This tool is in my old garage studio that served for 10 years.
