I've started making a few simple, pamphlet-stitch blank books with the handmade paper my husband Johntimothy made. This is the paper I use for almost everything...it's just so wonderful to work with. The paper ends up painted in most of the work that I do, but here it is shown dipped in beeswax. The paper starts out pretty white with light flecks in it, but the beeswax turns it much darker and greenish...still beautiful! I'm making little collages for the covers and I must say, they are ever so much fun! Listed this piece on Etsy this afternoon, along with another one, and had a sale almost right away. More books to come!
