 Hardbound. 5x7 inches. Cloth spine. Paper Cover.
















 A clamshell box covered in pink dupioni silk. The inside is polyester white "dupioni silk." It was made to fit our wedding album. It looks simple, but don't be fooled. It was the most frustrating and exacting of projects and the completed product has many flaws.














Coptic Bound with waxed linen thread. 8x10 in. Paper cover







Papercase made from black cave paper. Hand-stitched unwaxed linen thread head bands. 4.5 x 4 in.

Japanese Bound. 4x6 in. Paper cover, twine binding

Final Project for my Writings of Isaiah class. Suede cover. Coptic bound with waxed linen thread. About 6x5 in? (I don't have the book with me anymore). The cover is quoting from Isaiah 9:12 (and several other places in Isaiah-- that's just the first reference). It says, "...for all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still," meaning that God will punish the wicked for their sins (in his anger) but he ALWAYS is extending a hand of mercy to those who are willing to repent and come unto him. 
The book has pieces of paper which represent different symbols of Christ in Isaiah. Each symbol/paper is used twice, once as a condemnation, and the second time as a blessing. For example:
STONE (condemnation) Isaiah 8:14 And he shall be for a asanctuary; but for a bstone of cstumbling and for a drock of eoffence to both the houses of Israel, for a gin and for a fsnare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

STONE (mercy) Isaiah 28:16  Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I lay in Zion for a afoundation a bstone, a tried stone, a precious ccorner stone, a sure foundation: he that believeth shall not make haste.

I made 5 categories and the photos should be in the order in which they were in the book. The categoriees are ELEMENTS, TITLES (see Isaiah 9:6), ANIMALS, OCCUPATIONS, METALS, NATURE/EARTH

Fire and Wood are hand painted papers and Mountain is a painted topographical map.
