Book

This is another book I made in Albie Smith's class at Art and Soul.

It's a small one-postcard size more or less and folds out when open. The stitched binding forms cross stitches and is easy to do for that decorative effect.

The pages have a watercolor wash. For the first time I managed to actually do a wash rather than add too much color and paint. The end papers are paste papers that I stenciled over. I like making books. It's also an excuse to paint paper.
