I've started a perpetual journal after a great workshop with botanical artist Lara Gastinger. I created the book using a piece of eco dyed leather and an etched brass plate with a quote by Rachel Carson: What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?
The idea with the perpetual journal is that the artist will observe a plant or part of a plant in their surroundings and draw and/or paint it on a part of a spread for that week. In following years, more observations will be added until the book is full.
