This art journal is made from mixed pages that are ribbon-bound into a vintage book cover from 1936. The cover boards are marbled and slightly distressed appropriate to its age. The papers are made from a variety of papers with florals, butterflies, vintage handwritten documents, and heavy watercolour paper. They were boiled in a bath of tea, and eco printed with red and yellow onion skins and rust. The binding is a “ring” style, an open spine loosely bound with ribbons made of ivory sari silk.
