My First Wifi-connected Book 

Hand-bound, wifi-connected journal...prototype one.

Prep the covers & lay the copper leads between the holes in the spine

I twisted copper wire around the pads of the Photon & Lily Simple Power,
but I switched to stranded wire in a later iteration!
Solder the wire to the copper leads

Use a multimeter on continuity mode to identify shorts
Solder conductive fabric tape (adhesive up) to the copper leads

Sew signatures, adhering conductive fabric leads as you go

Insulate the conductive fabric on the spine using clear nail polish
Apply thin Velcro to back of battery; consider insulating back cover

Complete circuits & program Photon functions to tell your story
