A fair amount of gouache went into the making of this book, so I am cross-posting it here (as well as Mixed Media and Miniature forums).

Hi Sonia,
I had a look in the other thread. Beautiful! I like the idea of making a book...wonderfully executed. :)

Jan B and pinkrybns - thanks for your compliments.

I've just started another little book - they make unusual birthday cards. For speed, I think I will decorate this one with a small lino cut I've just done and an eraser stamp I made a while ago. I haven't got round to getting proper printing inks yet, but gouache paint with a touch of gum arabic should do the trick! And, of course, I always have a few sheets waxed and painted papers on hand to use for covers.

Sonia, I just replied on your other thread. You make me want to run out and take a bookmaking class. What gorgeous work, and what a little treasure!
