ink + paper + folds = ...

my latest artist's book!


I was inspired by Hedi Kyle's "blizzard" book structure; I modified it slightly, mainly by simplifying the structure and shape of the cover. Although this book can be constructed by one single sheet of paper, I used four self hinged sheets I had already marbled following the suminagashi technique. The cover is a left over mono print, lined with a very thin oriental paper, same as the envelope shaped signatures.  I used the functionality of the "envelope" pages to insert imprints from my collection of Chinese seals.

  1. That is gorgeous. I can imagine myself making artists books some day in the future. I have made one but busy now with art study and family. One day... :)
