Subversio Dolce

I stopped thinking clearly while making this book.

closed showing braided cord and tea-dyed parchment cover

opened flap showing the pencil pocket

a seriously overloaded modified leather binding

so, I thought a short jaunt into the oven to help dry out the book after the tea dying would be fine...instead, I...forgot it in the oven. the singed/burnt edges

interior pages with the tea dregs that burnt through the pages

just am thankful that I didn't forget it longer than 15 minutes! it probably would have set itself on fire...


  1. I actually like the burned effect.

  2. oh, it turned out nicely. i just wonder about the brittleness of the pages and cover.
