About this Book

The design and creation of this book suggests nature's organic image of the shape of a nut. The timber ends also depict our natural world.  These ends are crafted from an Australian native timber overlaid with liquid glass. Indian paper strips were laid on the same coloured paper which were then adhered to the timber ends before the liquid glass was poured. The title on the covers has been etched into the liquid glass with a sharp tool to give a subtle effect.  I have used delicate end papers to create a contrast with the handmade paper pages.

 

The lettering is written in gouache with broad edged pens, using dropped in colour on some pages to convey the changing season.  The book has been sewn with nylon fibre so it becomes invisible and yet strong and stable.
