Two book cover techniques are detailed from start to finish, along with text block construction, unique binding methods and installing end papers. On the cover, you'll learn a painting technique to mimic sapling bark and the Shield Lichen "growing" around the edges and spreading along the edges of the frame.
Nestled amongst the leaves of the book are nature-themed raggedies. Aged textiles, scraps of torn book pages and hand-marbled paper all sewn together with leather leaves and green, leafy springs to create an instantly disheveled, yet charming spirit.
Included is a massive printable digital kit with 20 journal page spreads, 2 eco-dyed prints, ephemera and artwork to place under the cover frames. Diagrams, templates and cut files for die cut machine users. Bonus content consisting of the templates and artwork to create the Pack Rat journal.
Even though trapped in the grip of cold weather, I dream of warmer days and walks through piney woods. My love for all things woodland inspired this course and the many facets that together create Forest Lore.
Down into the forest dipping, deep and deeper as we go,
One might fancy dryads slipping, where the white-stemmed birches grow.
-Lucy Maud Montgomery
