I’m working on the first book in my series of artist books. The series is based on Ray Bradbury’s collection of short stories The Illustrated Man. This book is going to be a flag book based on “The Long Rain”, which tells the story of astronauts who have crashed landed on the watery grave that is Venus.
I’m working on a 200 gsm watercolor paper with acrylic inks. The back of the paper is coated with black acrylic ink. The flags are uncoated watercolor paper and attached using PVA.
I still am unsure of what I want to do for the covers, but I have some gray bookcloth that I will likely use.
