This binding is a paper case made from Zaansch bord, a heavy weight dutch windmill paper. The design was hand stenciled in watercolor using the pochoir technique.
I chose the paper case because it is the book structure I most associate with my time in the UI conservation lab. The design I chose because corn is such an iconic part of the landscape and my favorite view in Iowa.
Estimated Value: $250
