Book Swap #12: CamilleRiner

When I heard that the swap was recycled I knew it was a great opportunity for me to go my old handmade paper print pile. It was fun to dig around and find prints and papers that worked together. I used a piece of an old handmade string paper relief print for the cover. The abaca in the cover sheet makes it strong and supple. I also liked the way the strings from the handmade string paper hung out the bottom of the paper so I left them. For the double pamphlet section interior I used more scrap prints, some white paper and some end scraps from prints that I had torn down and never found a purpose for. Eureka! Now I have! It was great fun to bring new life into some of these old images. --Camille

Lovely - I especially like the strings. It's different than my first thought of what a recycled book would be made of, and I like that a lot.

I'd love to feel the texture on that cover! And that really is a genius way to use old prints :)
