PALO SANTO SKETCHBOOK / JOURNAL
When I traveled with my dad to South America in 2015 to see where he grew up, Palo Santo wood carvings and turned wood objects were everywhere. It is one of the most beautiful woods I have ever worked with. It has an incredible grain – long, wavy stripes, and if you look closely, you will see feathery veins running throughout. Also, it has a wonderful fragrance – part citrus, part smokey. Working with it is such a pleasure and it reminds me of precious time spent with my dad in Paraguay.
PAPER TRAITS: Strathmore 400 series drawing paper (80 lb/118 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 writing and art ideas.
Each group of pages is wrapped in a cover of Strathmore 400 series cold press watercolour paper (140 lb/300 gsm) that has been hand dyed to accentuate the grain of the wood covers.
Hand sewn with Irish linen thread using the ancient Coptic method of bookbinding. This design allows for each of the pages to lay flat, ensuring that every page can be be used to its fullest.
