I’ve delved into tea staining for reasons of the mysterious project that requires knowledge of bookbinding, sketching, and general badassery.
I screw post bound 200 pages today. I also discovered (happily) that laser printers work deliciously well on tea stained paper. This is VERY important.
I played around with tea staining and printing on an individual page, and tea staining after binding to see what effect time, weight, and binding would have.
For SCIENCE! For ART! For the hope that someday someone is going to receive one of these suckers and realize that not only are the words inside amazing but it’s a work of art.
