japanese stab stitch books with hand marbled paper
Printmaking | Sculpture | Sewing | Sketchbook
Stab stitch / side stitch books made in the Japanese tradition with hand-marbled paper, solarprint, plastic canvas, vellum, and waxed cotton thread.
Books with bright-colored marbling are watercolor marbling inks; the subdued colors are suminagashi, or traditional Japanese-style paper marbling. Special thanks to Beccamakingfaces for the snowflake and Albuquerque designs.
