The Snow Book is hand-bound to create a minimal and evocative object, reminiscent of fog and snow.
Each handmade paper sheet is made from cotton trimmings and offcuts from the letterpress studio. It is made in-house one sheet at a time. The subtleties of each page become apparent when held and observed, and as the paper is unsized (absorbent) it has retained its softness and variable texture. These differences make the Snow Book the perfect vehicle for intuitive mark-making and poetic words. The deckled edged pages can be primed with gesso to create a more water-resistant surface and will take a variety of mediums for drawing, sketching, collage and mixed media. Fountain pen and wet applications are not suitable for unsized papers.
The snow book comes simply packaged with an embossed belly band, wrapped in acid free tissue paper and a sewn paper sleeve.
