Coptic Bound Books by

Lisa Bonilla Panter

All the books are made with wooden covers, Nepalese paper, and sewn with linen thread. They are embellished with windows and doors, found objects, metals etched by the artist, and either left blank, constructed into a box, or filled with watercolor sketches, collage, or mono prints done by the artist.
