Materials + Techniques

I used cotton fabric, terrycloth, thread, metal rings, solar sun print paint, and fabric paint. I used a laser cutter for the page shape and text stencil.

Student Narrative

My book was created over the course of design studio, with many changes from the initial draft. I was inspired by the fragile form of the butterfly and wanted my narrative to enhance the exterior. The cloth and sun prints help enhance the nature of the insect and carry on this organic ‘thread’.
