This book form has many names – I personally love dragon fold – and I chose it to highlight the soft sheen and subtle clouds of this handmade paper. This Info-Islamic style paper was painted by hand using a variety of traditional dyestuffs and then burnished to s soft sheen using the stone you see in the image. I like how it looked with the book so much, I made a box so they can always be together!

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.
