golden thread underneath

tomorrow the final art for the cover will be shipped to the publisher in maine. (i realize that this project has had no title here, yet. but soon, soon i will make the introduction.)

on the cover is the main character's sketchbook. so getting out my rather rusty book binding skills, i built a book for the cover.

i used a golden colored cotton to sew the signatures together. when the book is closed and glued down no one will be able to see. i find that the joys of making art and seeing art are two separate creatures like a bird and a bear.

i've been listening to Ys by joanna newsom which gets better with every repeat.
