52 Weeks of Printmaking on Textile: Week 7

This entire series is inspired by rare African textiles that I received from the Smithsonian National African Museum of Art in Washington, DC back in October 2016.

After the initial surprise of receiving such prized beauties, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with them: Make rare handcrafted books.

There is nothing more grounding than walking through clouds.
