Pulling together a book


I don’t often create books anymore and I’m wondering “why not?” They’re so much fun to create. All the papers to choose, both interior & exterior. Did I mention I’m a paper addict? I’m still working out the final colors, but I need to work fast. This is part of a collaboration between 4 artists: each artist creates a book, picks a theme, sketches on several of the pages and then sends it off to the next. Four books will be completed in the end, each completely different but connected. Once I complete my first round of drawings (and finish assembling the book) I’ll post images and links to the other artists. Interior paper is currently Arches 140# coldpress watercolor paper. Finished book is basically an A5 journal. So far the interior pages are that measurement, but the jacket is just a smidgen larger. I might need to tweak it a tad more.

Looks like I’ll be working hard on Sunday!
