Hand Bound Sketchbook with Original Wet Cyanotype Print Covers … Umbelliferae … Because Your Words Are Worth It


The covers for this A5 hand bound sketchbook were made using original wet cyanotype prints. The covers feature wild Umbellifer flowers from the hedgerows around my lovely Wiltshire home. I used Indian Cotton Rag paper to create the prints and I used a sprinkle of silver dye and salt in the wet cyanotype process.

The inside covers are made using handmade Nepalese Lokta paper in gorgeous airmail blue. The book is stitched together with blue Irish Linen waxed thread.

I used Coptic stitching to bind the book together. Coptic binding means that the book will lie completely flat when opened, which makes it perfect for journaling or sketching.

All of the cartridge paper for the pages is recycled, mostly from old paper cups, and it’s all hand torn.

The paper is 170gsm, so thick enough to use for watercolour painting, or you could use it as a photograph album.

The grey-board used for the covers is also, wherever possible, made from recycled materials.

This Journal is unique and made entirely by hand.
