Compiling a final year presentation portfolio for your degree is always stressfull. Your body of work must be outstanding, concise and well put together.

Brenda created her intricate pattern and design using felt, which was sewn onto a cotton and wool backing material.

It is at this point however that the common purpose splinters into a number of different camps or preferences. Portfolio books or portfolio boxes? If it's portfolio books should the pages be bound directly into the portfolio, or hinge strips or are sleeves the answer to solve grubby fingers??
