My first stab at a longstitch binding. And while it is absolutely gorgeous, the signatures were waaay too big (21 folios=42 pages), which makes for a flimsier book. But! I still got a good grade on the final and I learned stuff so I’m happy ^^
The Bunny Book
I took a bookbinding class last semester and it was awesome! *3* This was by far my most successful (read usable) project ^^
Paper case with a rounded spine and hand-sewn endbands and a clamshell box to match
Another intaglio. BTW, not my favorite process ever. Too much washing of hands :( They got all cracky and dry super fast.
This is Spike. He introduced me to my husband. Coolest cat ever ♥
(intaglio print from last winter)
One last watercolor from last semester, and look! I have the reference!
Another watercolor study I’ve since lost the reference too. Blame Joe ;) He picked it.
Watercolor study for painting last fall ♥
I’m afraid I’ve lost the reference picture though :(
He just wants to make a phone call :(
I did this for my printmaking class last year—it’s a lithograph, btw—but only now found a scanner big enough for it (almost).
