From: A Circle of Love

Text by Joan Finnigan

The pages of this book are made out of one sheet of Arches Text Wove on which I did multiple random acrylic washes with a little salt thrown in for good measure. The final outcome brought to mind this poem by Joan Finnigan from a longer poem called "A Circle of Love".

 

The lettering was done with a brush using a mix of Pro White and W&N Permanent White gouache. I later highlighted the letters with watercolor.

 

It's dimensions are:

H. 9"   W 6.75"   D .5"

 

The cover and box are covered in silk that I purchased in Bangladesh over 20 years ago.

 

The book uses a meander/maze/flutter book structure see figures 31 & 32 on this link
