And thus it begins! After all the pages are done, we can now turn to the really complicated part… actually building the book. Step 1: Building the text block The first part was to build the text block. I already had the pages traced and printed so I took some photocopies of them so that I could age the page in water and don’t damage the drawings. The I used my usual aging process and placed the paper in water with fabric dye for a 10 or 20 seconds. Then let all pages dry out over plastic. I never use an actually flat surface because the small pools of water leave a lot of marks and dark spots on the pages that I really like.
So, here they are. All the pages I managed to trace based only on screenshots from the TV show. These are not the official pages from the book the might or might not be available in the future. Nor have I seen the ones shown in the comics. You can download all the pages on the Star vs the Forces of Evil download page! Next week we start to build the actual physical book! Enjoy!
Probably the most common question I get about the Gravity Falls pages is “Where are the pages from vol 1 and vol 2?!”, which is understandable since the book has 3 in the name so people amuse all pages belong to that volume alone. So, I have reordered all the pages in volumes so there’s no more confusion. I also added a few new pages just so it’s all complete! So please go the the revamped Gravity Falls download page where you can get all the new files!
