5" x 5" Coptic Bound Journal
Seeded eucalyptus was used to eco print* the silk fabric for this hand bound journal. 100 pages of Rives lightweight paper are inside. This is a lovely paper for writing or light sketching. The Coptic binding allows the book to lay flat when open and in use. A vintage glassine envelope is attached to the inside front cover for collecting treasures.
*Eco printing is a process where leaves and other botanicals are tightly bound within a natural fiber textile or paper. The combination of tight contact with the leaves, heat, steam and a little magic releases the pigments in the leaves onto the cloth/paper. One part science many parts magic, each print is one of a kind.
