I thought this would be a quick project but like most projects there was a lot of fiddling! I made the covers by gelatine printing Clematis leaves on old Encyclopedia pages. (Ex Readers Digest - the pages print well as they are quite absorbent. Used one of my favourite colours for this process - green black.) Then I couldn't find end papers to match so handprinted a blue/green on French Arches Paper. (Again, not so quick because each book needs two end papers = 32 and both sides have to be printed = 64 times through the press + the experimenting to get the right look! I ended up using oil based ink) All stitched up with embroidery thread and French Link Stitch Binding , 12 signatures of 4 pages each, steel grey paper 80 gsm. They are A5 size - I am happy that the local Warehouse Stationery slices a ream of paper in half for $2. I got them to trim a bound book too, but decided to keep the forecreep to retain the handmade feel. An edition of 16 - to be posted on Monday to The Little River Gallery, Banks Peninsula, for a shared exhibition titled 'Taylormade', opening soon!
