Indigo and Rust Journal 4
For this collection of handmade books, I used fresh indigo dye, grown in my SC garden and rust pigment. I paint and print the 140lb. watercolor paper covers and interior printmaking papers to create organic imprints. This series of six are 5 1/2 by 6" booklets that have three signatures totaling 36 pages of paper for your notes, ideas, poems. This book is eco-printed with a live oak leaf and a leaf has been stitched to the cover as well. These books fit almost anywhere, easy to tuck in a purse of backpack. Eco dyed cloth closure included.
