Week #7
This work was done by Maggie Gillikin in 2016 in San Antonio for the session “Primitive to Modern” in PRIMITIVE TO MODERN. In her own words:
This book and box were completed in the summer of 2016 during the Primitive to Modern Reggie class in San Antonio. For the book, I used Arches 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper, gouache for the letterforms, graphite for the drawing portion, and watercolors (mostly Winsor Newton and Schmincke) for the paintings. The letterforms are in Carolingian, a favorite of mine from a previous Reggie class, done with a #4 Mitchell nib. The small Romans are written with a Hiro 111 nib. The images portrayed are from my own garden, my photographic collection, or from sketches done on site (such as the clock at the Musée D’Orsay). The river represented is the Mississippi at dawn.

Loose gold appears throughout, adhered to a single layer of Instacol in each instance.

The book is bound in spring green goat leather and carries a heat-transferred 24K gold leaf image.

The drop spine box is covered in green Japanese silk, with a watercolor leaf image on the front.
