The covers for this series of books ar taken from a much loved family pine tree. The wood has been aged for three years with careful attention given to preserve the natural edge of the wood. It was then terrified to deepen the natural grain.
To learn more about my process and to see images of the wood as it progressed go to Live Edge Books.
Inside you’ll find Strathmore 400 Series paper, 80 lb/130 gsm. This paper works well with graphite pencil, coloured pencil, pen and ink, marker, soft pastel, mixed media and oil pastel; perfect for all your drawing and writing needs. Each signature (group of pages) is wrapped in a cover of Strathmore 400 Series water colour paper (140 lb/300 gsm). Decorative guards add extra strength to the overall binding and on this particular book they are images of a wilderness camping scene (scrolling through the images gives you a peak at each portion).
The pages have been shaped to match the contours of the live edge covers and are hand sewn using Irish linen thread. The pages have been aged with a tea and coffee dye making each page unique in its initial markings – ready for you to complete with your words, sketches or other art work.
Coptic end bands provide both strength and beauty.
