    1. Available on Amazon, also from Chronicle books but it looks like they're on backorder there...either way they're affordable at around $10!

  2. Hi, I was wondering what technique did you use to print and perforate these and whether you think there's a cost-efficient way of printing several different designs (1 copy per design).
    Very beautiful art by the way!

    1. this is not my publication, but presumably there's a part of the printing process in which they are perforated....in terms of printing different designs, i assume these are all printed on one sheet and then perforated....you can do perforating yourself if you have a perforating machine...
