Often we forget that many of the things we use on a daily basis come from natural sources, and that we rely on our natural environment to provide for us. The goal of this book is to recenter the plant products I regularly interact with in my art practice as a printmaker. The book is made using hand drawn illustrations of each plant, that were then scanned and laser engraved onto plexiglass so they could be printed as intaglio plates. The ink used for this book is made from indigo pigment, which was mulled in combination with linseed oil.
