General Notes

  • All covers are watercolor paper, 100% cotton rag, acid-free. Most are Arches papers, a few are other brands. Coptic book "boards" are 300# papers. The folded others are 140#.
  • Painted decoration on covers is watercolor/watermedia, watercolor/watermedia and ink, or acrylic.
  • Mosaic/collage bits are watercolor paper with watercolor, watermedia, and/or ink decoration, except as noted.
  • Most internal pages are 100% rag, acid-free bond papers (mostly #32), ivory or white, folded and torn, except as noted. The brightly colored pages of books are acid-free Canson Mi Teintes pastel papers, folded and torn, except as noted.
    Note: The brightly colored pages of many of the 2007 books were mostly "neon" bond papers, which were neither acid-free nor PH-neutral; but none of those books is still available.
  • The thread used in stitching is 3-ply linen, #18 or #12, waxed. Hemp #20 was used for a few books.
  • Most book dimensions are 4.25" x 5.5" x 0.5"D. Another group is somewhat larger at 6.5"H x 4.75" to 5" W x 0.5"D. Scattered exceptions are noted.

  • Any "NA" or "SOLD" books are not available. Some of the "NA" books may only be temporarily unavailable or available from a vendor, which I started indicating after a while:
  • Books are signed:
    • Beginning in late February 2008, books are, for the most part, signed/initialled and dated in ink on the outside back cover.
    • Earlier 2008 books are, for the most part, signed/initialled and dated in ink on the inside back cover.
    • The 2007 books were, for the most part, signed/initialled and dated in pencil on the inside back cover.
