Progress is progress is progress.

Progressing out of sequence, my book is emerging from the thoughts that contain and grow it. The pages are bound before all the drawings are done. Homes have been painted out of chronology, numbers 1 and 6 (pictured) completed. The bottom picture is a preliminary design for the cover, pattern taken from William Morris. The centre will be an inset embroidery of home no.2, not sure the design will frame it or the entire book correctly, a high risk of it being scraped. The cover is to be engraved hoop pine with copper pigment impregnated in the line work.
