Description

This one-of-a-kind colourful handmade book contains 144 pages of bright white acid-free 70 lb drawing paper, which is fountain-pen friendly and also ideal for sketching in pencil, charcoal, crayon, pen and ink. I used waxed linen thread for the Coptic stitch binding, which creates beautiful exposed braids on the spine and allows the pages to lie flat when the book is open, making it comfortable to write in.

The covers are original ecoprints I created on watercolour paper using pink morning glory and rudbeckia petals . Ecoprinting – also called botanical contact printing – is the process of capturing the natural dyes and pigments in leaves and flowers on paper using heat and pressure. Every print is unique and all the colors come from plants – I don’t use any synthetic dyes, inks or paints.

Handcrafted with care by Peta Bailey in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
