Meditation Manual: a drum leaf book

Sitting, straight, mind,

Thought, spin and struggle,

Mind Quiets

Centering, breathing, releasing

Worlds align with peace,

Centering

Form and emptiness balance,

Body doubles nothing,

Form and Emptiness
Form and Emptiness

Universal lines form

Infinite worlds

Universal Being

Aligning deeper,

Earth’s only witness.

Touch the Earth

As this project developed, the process was to take quarter sheets of 22×30 paper and fold them.  Using drum leaf binding, the folios were glued one to the other.  Then the covers were added.  This was completed before the images were done within the book.  This gives the Drum Leaf binding an advantage over other bindings.  The pages, being double thick allow the artist to work, paint etc on the pages after the book is bound… building up ideas into the final presentation.  
These are a few of the other pictures related to this book:
