On the first day of this class you will learn how to prepare paper for eco printing and use leaves and flowers to make beautiful permanent prints. We will make small samples of our books structures while we wait for our papers to steam. On day two we will use the our papers to make 6  simple book forms: 2 options of the pamphlet stitch book, an accordion book, a star book and a Japanese stab binding.
