Silk Painting Coffee Table Book

Wednesday, December 17, 2008

A website enquiry about one of my other websites got me thinking about a project idea which I keep pushing to the back of my very busy brain ... but this week I decided that to FINISH, I need to START :-)

I gathered photos of my silk painting adventures - recent and past - and started putting them in a square book template which will be perfect to sit on a coffee table.


Each photo above will appear on its own page - above you can see the 25 page book layed out - each page will have a description of the type of silk, dyes and other embellishments, techniques used - and I must say it was a lovely feeling to see this in one snapshot of my life (as shown above)!

The silk paintings or pieces of silk from scarves, wallhangings etc each hold a special memory for me, and this is like my own personal mosaic of some of the silk paths I've followed, some of the silken threads which have gently pulled me from country to country, adventure to adventure.

I have many more photos which I might add to this book or make a follow-up, but I'm pleased as punch to have got to this point ... now I need to FINISH it :-)

Pages in book : 20+
Size of page : 7.5 x 7.5 inches
Availability : as soon as it's ready :-)

You can zoom in a wee bit by clicking on the image above.

I'm so happy with it!

Hi Susan,

Thanks for stopping by.

Just to clarify, this is a book, 7.5x7.5" square - not a coffee table. :-)

cheers

Hi Chris,

Thanks for dropping by! I wasn't happy with the printing of the first version of the book, so have been looking for a better solution.

I've found a print-on-demand option which I'm trying this week. Fingers' crossed I'll have the new book available to buy next week! I'll be so thrilled to get it done again.

Cheers
