365 Handmade Books: Painted Songs, Day 32

By February, I realized I needed to plan the books in a more efficient way if I was going to make 365.
365 Handmade Books: Painted Songs, Books 32 through 59
For the month of January, I created more than 550 images (illustrations, linocuts, collages, handmade papers, and paintings).  In February I experimented with painting the covers one color, red.
Textured Book Covers
This worked out really well because I was free to concentrate on various textures, and push them to their limits.
