hand-bound journal: tropical
The Joan Wenske Collection...
This book is meant to be used. When we have beautiful things made by hand, we are more likely to use them in a meaningful way. I partenered with artist/illustrator Joan Wenske to create the hand-drawn covers for this collection. Her images are printed on cotton canvas which is then tea-dyed in my studio and embellished with a hand-stiched pop of color. Each book begins with with hand-torn soft white, unlined, acid-free, 80# text paper that is ideal for drawing and writing with pen or pencil. The exposed spine stitching allows the book to lay flat when it is open. This book is 116 pages long and measures 5 x 6.5”.
