Legami Sospesi – Teabags Artist’s Book

Teabags paper is a so versatile material. I like giving another life to the used ones and experimenting the quality of this “paper” in my Art.
This is one of the artist’s books I did using teabags. Here they are used as base for the printing of four engraving/collage illustrations, collected in a squared artist’s book.
The cover is also entirely made of used teabags.
