Handmade item

Materials

waxed linen thread, ecoprinted paper, cardstock, natural dyes and pigments, book board

Size: 8.5 inches x 5.5 inches with 176 pages of white, lined acid-free 60 lb writing paper.

This unique handmade book celebrates plants and trees and the beautiful green places they grow. The covers and end pages are made from watercolor paper I ecoprinted with purple basil grown in my garden. It would make a very special one-of-a-kind gift for a Mom who loves journaling.

Making books is a labor of love for me and involves many steps. First, I create one-of-a-kind ecoprints by hand picking and artfully arranging locally grown flowers, leaves, seeds and roots on watercolor paper, which I press and steam. The colorful patterns on my book covers and end pages are created by the unique combination of natural dyes and pigments released by plant materials. Each journal immortalizes summer's leaves and flowers on its covers and inside pages.

I choose the very best ecoprints for the covers and end pages of my books. I treat the ecoprints I use for the covers with a special Japanese starch to make them more durable and also give them a pleasing leather-like feel. Then I carefully fold and glue the covers onto high quality acid-free book board. I bind each journal by hand using waxed linen thread. The Coptic stitch binding I hand sew creates beautiful exposed braids on the spine and allows the pages to lie flat when the book is open.

I hope someone will enjoy using this book as much as I enjoyed making it.
