Another miniature sketchbook got made -
ledger style with fold out pages. Get it here.
A large leather journal was put together,
with some raw-edged remnants I dug for in the studio.
A ledger format journal was created,
with a dragonfly theme -
we all know it wasn't going to be long,
before one of these showed up in my store again ....
Between all this, I found a vintage map and wanted to stain it.
It pained me to tear it into bits in the first place,
but I had bought it specifically to use
as endpapers for travel journals
- and so it goes.
It was backed with linen,
and of course this detached itself in the staining process.
I marveled at this event,
I felt like an archaeologist -
yet lacking the appropriate tools to handle these artifacts.
With wide eyes,
it seemed like laying out pieces of skin,
piece after piece,
delicate and old.
I will of course return with updates.
