Bookbinding is a beautiful process. I did these small notebooks and albums using my handprinted paper.
What I like about them is that every single piece is unique in its print and colour combination.
For the last three days I took part in a collage workshop.
We were asked to do collages about our future hopes and dreams, using a variety of materials such as pieces of old magazines, handmade paper, chalks, charcoal, acrylics or ink.
I found the process of creating the collages extremely inspiring and also much fun.
Printing has become a kind of obsession lately so I thought why not use this creative energy and make some nice DIY Christmas presents using my printing plates?
I got this nice sketchbook made out of handmade paper and printed on the front and back of the book. The first print was done with blue, the second with white linocut colour.
The structure of the handmade paper creates these unexpected forms…
The book is going to be a present for an art teacher.
