A Book of Black Branches

I wanted to express the coming of Autumn, the cold days ahead, but also the warmth of home and the comfort and peace it brings.

There are over 120 individual tooling impressions in this design. The tools were coated in carbon to achieve the contrast and later the impressions were lacquered with shellac.

The journal is available on Etsy:
