Tiny sketchbook, made the book from offcuts from a vintage arithmetic schoolbook, gesso on the pages and dedicated to black biro drawings of rabbits and hares.
Book from a charity shop just after the end of confinement here in France. A letterpress book from 1963 about the history and benefits of honey, along with recipes for eating, remedies and beauty.
French workshop ledger from the 1920s. This was the first repurposed book for the project, started in 2019. I made gesso to paint the pages and then used the book to experiment and explore mark-making, using a variety of techniques and mediums as a daily practice.
LA MARE AU DIABLE
La Mare au Diable (The Devil’s Pool) by George Sand. The book was ugly but with a hardcover, and a good texture, colour, size and weight of the pages.
