A Forager's Guide to Natural Inkmaking
Make Ink delves into the history of inkmaking and the science of distilling pigment from the natural world. Readers will learn how to forage for materials such as soot, rust, cigarette butts, peach pits and black walnut, then how to mix, test and transform these ingredients into rich, vibrant inks that are sensitive to both place and environment.
Organized by colour, and featuring lovely minimalist photography throughout, Make Ink combines science, art and craft to instil the basics of ink making and demonstrate the beauty and necessity of engaging with one of mankind’s oldest tools of communication.
