Family Tree Scrapbook #2, with 50 Copper Leaves
Dimensions: 17 1/2 x 11 3/4 x 3 1/2 (inches)
Family Tree Scrapbook #2, with 50 Copper Leaves. A Tree has been handcarved and applied to the cover of this large Scrapbook Album. Smooth gold deerskin has been stretched over the 3-D carved tree, one inch at a time, and fit tightly into all the grooves with small tools. Fifty individual copper leaves have been cut & sanded, then wired onto the leaf surfaces. Multi-color finishes have been created on the copper leaves with the use of ketchup, lemon juice, & salt. Handmade green paper has been applied to the inner covers as endsheets, which are embedded with leaf segments. The headbands, stitched directly into the spine edges, are comprised of leather cords wrapped with rust and green thread. The cover hinges of the Scrapbook Album are reinforced with two layers of 55 lb tensile strength fabric, both under the leather and under the coversheets, to ensure heirloom strength and quality. Black 80 pound cover weight acid-free pages are bound into the book, handsewn around the three binding cords seen under the smooth black spine leather. Each page of the Family Tree Scrapbook Album has been handripped to create a curved deckled edge. Nine curved and coiled copper wires accent the design. The back cover of the Family Tree Scrapbook Album features three sections of suede brown leather divided by three panels of smooth black leather. At the center of the handcarved Tree trunk is a thermostat coil from a diesel truck engine.
