365 Handmade Books: Painted Songs, Day 98

The Power of Color

Color inspirations for 365 Handmade Books
As I approached the 100th consecutive day of creating, painting, printing, illustrating, writing, and binding a book a day, I found inspiration in color.

original painting and dialogue, Book 98 by Suzanne Coley
Normally, I look to nature for color, patterns, and texture.   However, in April I took a trip to a fabric store for some fabric and ran into these beautiful colored threads.  They inspired me to continue making beautifully textured and tactile covers in vibrant colors.  Each month would have a different color so that when all of the books were lined up they would form a pattern.
