Eco Printed Hand Bound Journal--"Zebra Print"
$58.00 / Sold Out
Notice the difference in how this leaf printed. On one side the green pigments from the leaf printed. On the other side, brown pigments predominate with a "zebra" stripe from the string used to bind the fabric. This is all eco print magic, nothing you can force to happen.
Journal is 5" x 5" and bound with a Coptic stitch binding which allows the book to lay flat when open and in use. There are 96 pages of Canson mixed media paper which is great for writing, sketching, acrylics or watercolor. Inside end papers are also eco-printed* with leaves from my daily walks.
*Eco printing is a process by which leaves and other botanicals are tightly bound within a natural fiber textile or paper and heated over steaming water. The combination of tight contact with the cloth/paper, heat, steam and a little magic releases the pigments from the leaf onto the fabric. One part science, many parts magic, no two prints are ever the same.
