A zig-zag design coptic stitch blank book with decorative paper covers, filled with Rives BFK hand-torn paper. "This fine printmaking paper is mouldmade in France and has a smooth, absorbent surface. Rives Papers, made of 100% cotton, are acid free, soft-sized, and buffered. Rives is perfectly suited for lithography, intaglio, screenprinting, relief printing, linocut, collotype, and drawing."
