Description

Leather and Lace

I enjoyed weaving the string around the furniture tacks down the spine of this book. After I applied the black encaustic over the string it reminded me of leather, patent leather, hence the name.

The back is very much like the front but here you can see the edge of the fabric wrap.

All books in this series are first steeped in beeswax to permeate the layers and encapsulate in wax. I believe this helps in the preservation. This piece is free standing.
