Here's dummy number 5 & 6 along with some images printed on mulberry paper. If you look closely you will see mountains in the background. The linoleum blocks are printed verso and the paper is folded in half. This technique was discovered purely by accident.
More printing tests but this time on 100% abaca paper handmade by Katie MacGregor. This paper has the most wonderful rattle, like walking on dry leaves. You can't really see it but this is dummy number 3, sewn on willow twigs. Cute but a little too crafty.
I am using multiple papers. The papers I've decided on will be the abaca, handmade Katie wove and the mulberry combined in each signature. The handmade papers won't be made until later this summer but I can get the mulberry from Hiromi and at least start printing that part of it sooner.
