Back in business This is the first notebook I make after many months.

Black Chinese ink is a new material I'm using in the series made with collage with techniques based on my own experiments.

The covers of this notebook are made with cotton fabric, cardboard from a shoes-box, A4 yellow envelope, a supermarket paper-bag, Chinese ink and an egg. As always I'm using recycled papers. Every paper is not applied to the collage in the way I take it. A process work with acrylic paint, ink, egg and polish is made to every paper putting an eye on every detail of their natural properties and qualities for making visible the beauty of torn edges, wrinkles, stains and their smooth tactile qualities in brown, ochre colors and tones of gray and black.

The composition of the collage is carefully made, inspired by the look and character of old aged papers from books, documents, artists sketchbooks, etc

This kind of binding is called Buckram. The thick cardboard of the covers is rigid but in the black fabric part of the binding is flexible as as magazine allowing to open the book in 360 grades.

7.87 x 5.90 inches. (20 x 15 cm).

60 blank hand sewn pages of off-white Chlorine free bleached paper, it means that you can use markers, paint, brushes etc. You can take notes, make jottings, draw, paint, print...

This notebook not only makes you wish to write, paint or draw in its pages, it also makes you wish to hold it in your hands and touch it feeling its soft textures with the quality of natural and eco-friendly materials.
