This is a large coptic bound book 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 I completed the book in June 2020.
