Hand Bound Journal--Red Oak
4" x 5"hand bound journal with red oak ecoprint* on silk cover. 80 pages of white Schiller paper fills the book. This paper is similar to text wove but slightly heavier. Takes ink, gouache, watercolor and acrylics nicely. With a Coptic binding the journal lays flat when in use. A vintage glassine envelope is included on the inside front cover for collecting treasures
*Ecoprinting is a process by which leaves and other botanicals are tightly bound within a natural fiber textile or paper and heated over simmer watering. The combination of tight contact with the fabric, heat, steam and a little magic releases the pigments in the leaf onto the cloth/paper. One part science and many parts magic. No two prints are ever the same.
