Acanthus mollis.

This is the book I made earlier this year.
























I have now decided to use it. I prepared the pages with a wash of grey paint, with a tiny bit of silver.





























I decided on a tribute to Karl Blossfeldt. Each page will have a drawing of one of his photographs.
Here is #1.

Unconventional and clever. I have no idea who Karl Blossfeldt is. Now I'll have to go find out.
