Book of Honesty XII Mo17
graphite and ink on Moulin de Larroque handmade watercolour paper, stitched Lunaria pods
Edging closer Mo! They are so beautiful; delicate; fragile, resilient…They make me want to turn pages gently and slowly already…enjoy the preparation of covers and the binding; what a treasure this book will be.
(((Fiona))) the lucky last no XIII is happening this morning after another cup of coffee!
dreaming up & sketching ideas for the covers, will make some samples for these three this weekend
-an onlaid stem of Honesty, fragile but could be sealed with an acrylic sealant
-an inset window holding a single pod of Honesty with an acetate (or perhaps mica) window to protect it
-an onlaid relief drawing of a single Honesty pod, this would be subtle and sturdier and I am leaning towards it
I am so with Fiona in taking in the beauty of each set of pages..and finding myself always amazed at the resiliency of the plant material to stitch. Your work in ink is amazing.
the membrane of Honesty is very fragile & shatters easily but the edges are strong
