Les Houches – Les Contamines

A photo book of the Alps

2017

Greyboard, 300gsm Stockwell paper, lokta paper, cyanotype prints, bleached and then tea-stained

Coptic binding

I made this book after spending three days hiking in the Alps. The cover is a contour map of the area, and the different shades of brown were achieved with tea-dyed lokta paper. Tea was also used to dye the thirteen cyanotype prints inside.
