My books are made from excess prints, scraps, swatches, memorabilia and ephemera accumulated over years working in my studio. I sort, cull, sequence and hand bind every book individually, to make each a unique color experiment and a page-turning surprise.
Use as journal, daily creativity prompt, scrapbook or decorative object. Each one-of-a-kind, hand-bound “To Fill or To Fondle” book is a conversation between materials and design, and creates an opportunity for dialogue between user and book, for you to fill or to fondle. These books are OPEN; not blank.
Cover is heavy-weight red paper, screen printed with pink, white and silver ink. Interior pages are white, pink, maroon, and grey papers of various textures and materials, plus screen and cyanotype prints, sparkling silver, vintage ephemera and handmade paper inclusions. Dark pink binding thread.
Dimensions Closed: approximately 8.75 inches tall, 5.75 inches wide, and 1.625 inches thick. Signed with studio stamps, book number, and dated.
Approximate shipping cost $10. Multiple purchases are calculated together for total shipping cost.
This listing is for one book. Additional To Fill or To Fondle books, each unique, are available.
