Occasional ruminations concerning painted pages, hand bound books, the use of photos in journaling and the contemplation of various other pursuits.

The Yellow Book
The binding is a sewn-over-tapes binding using waxed linen and a thrift store belt. LK Ludwig taught me this binding one year at Art and Soul. The covers are re-purposed book board covered with paste paper made in an Albie Smith class. Inside, the pages are a variety of colors and textures using very inexpensive watercolor paints. Making the pages is a great way to play in puddles of water and pigments....no stress. What you get is what you get!
