MINIATURE LOG BOOK
The covers of a book provide protection for their contents. When I started using logs for covers, it seemed to enhance the idea that books provide protective spaces to either get lost in a story, record history, discover wisdom. They also can provide a safe space to gather one’s thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams.
The wood used for this collection of miniature books is from cedar log pieces that I picked up on a hike near where I live. The heartwood of cedar is stunning.
Inside you’ll find aged Strathmore 400 Series drawing paper (80 lb/118 gsm). This paper works well with graphite pencil, pen and ink, marker, soft pastel, mixed media and oil pastel; perfect for all your drawing, writing and mixed media needs. Each signature is wrapped in a cover of Strathmore 400 Series watercolour paper (130 lb/300 gsm).
Log covers are hand sewn with linen thread using the ancient Coptic method of bookbinding.
