This folded book form is called a “winged” book. The colors of the hand painted paper reminded me of a desert or canyon at dusk and were created using traditional dyestuffs like logwood, pomegranate and indigo. The soft sheen on the paper is created by hand polishing each sheet.
Medium: Book arts (handmade flax and cotton paper, adhesive)
Size: 6″ x 3″ x 0.5″

About the Artist – Debra Eck
I’m a teaching artist who works with paper, thread and text. I l often end up making books! I love learning new processes and traditional techniques, I’m as much a learner as a teacher. If I’m not in my studio I’m probably in the woods or garden experimenting with materials I find there, or in a thrift store or at a landfill looking for things to recycle in my work.
