I made my own book for this RR, with a ribbon binding that is clearly explained in LK Ludwig’s Creative Wildfire book.
It’s a nifty binding in that the book opens flat, which is really handy when artists are going to work in my book.
I have made double page spreads with watercolor paper, and wrapped each page with pretty japanese papers, to take advantage of the spines showing in the binding edge.
And… drum roll, I painted the Geisha on the front cover, since I’ve been teaching myself watercolors. Why, is definitely the question, since this has to be the hardest, most meticulous form of painting I’ve encountered so far.
First page and inside cover
Left page only has one small strip, the right page has a full wrap.
Both pages only have a strip of colored paper.
