Autumn Album

This album arose from my desire to explore three-dimensionality and leather work. I wanted to create the effect of leaves being whisked away by the wind. So, I cut out numerous leaf silhouettes from a variety of board thicknesses and layered them across the front and back covers. I then covered the book in leather, molding it around the leaf shapes. The end result provides some lovely shadows and hollows that give the book a more organic feel.
