Yes, I have bound my etchings into a book. I used card stock as the
signature and individually bound each 'signature' to the spine by going
outside and around the spine and tying a sheep shank knot at both the top
and bottom. The book boards are covered in a high fibber content paper.
The etchings, which I hand colored with acrylic inks and water colors (which
look neat over the black oil ink) are tipped in on each signature. The
etchings show the life cycle of a monarch butterfly. I was very pleased
with how the book turned out as I dreamt up the binding myself. I used many
of the traditional bookbinding techniques, adding endpapers, etc., but the
binding is my own. I used medium weight twine. jansapp@xxxxxxx still
exploring book structures to display my prints.
