Caterpillar Lizard

approx 4.5"w x 5.5"h x 1.25" thk.
Page size: 4.25"w x 5.5"h

Created: August 10, 2010


Covers are bookboard painted with a couple coats of Eberhard/Faber Twin Color "Violet/Gold". depending on the angle of light you get different shades. Very luscious colors.

The binding is a 2 needle coptic on top and bottom done in a 4ply waxed linen thread "Butterscotch". The caterpillar binding is also done with 4 ply in "Dark Forest Green & White". I used copper eyelets in all the holes and gold book corners.

The signatures are created with Arches Text Wove (a little over a full sheet for the whole book), along with a cream toned 110# cardstock and a cover sheet of resist lizard painted mulberry paper in purples and teals.

There are 6 signatures each with 3 pieces of the Text Wove, 1 of the cardstock and 1 of the Lizard paper, for a total number of 20 pages/signature and 120 pages in the book.

My logo is on the inside back cover


You can see the sheen and shimmer from the paint on the back and front cover of the journal image on the left.
