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.
