One of the techniques that Alberto Hernandez had used to create his Hybrid Novel (see here: ) was to0 use different types of paper. Here I have looked at the texture that paper made from banana skin creates. Myt parents brought me this home when they went to Cuba in summer ’13. The outside of the book has a lovely grainy texture, as you can see in the second and third image, and the paper itself is really thick and quite bumpy. The paper makes you want to touch it and it would make a great tactile piece.
