Finally, I finished my birdwatching book. There were many unsuccessful attempts at this book, including drawing the image on book cloth, but it didn’t look quite right. This one is a collage of printouts along with acrylics, all on gesso-coated book board.
The binding is also new. I’ve always wanted to sew on tapes, but found it too flimsy, so tried combining it with some coptic stitching at the head and tail and in the middle. I’m very happy with the results. Now if I could only spot an indigo bunting.
