Book_of_Failure_WIP_03

This is a large coptic bound book (in progress) made from my color proofs and misprints from the last decade. I always saved them thinking, “I’ll make books out of these one day.” The day came, and I decided to make one giant book from all of them (plus a few select giveaway and found prints from the studio). I bound this book by hand coptic style over the course of a week, complete with covers made from my woodcut prints on fabric.

I began using this tome as my sketchbook in June 2019 and am still currently working on filling its pages.
