Coptic Bound Haiku Book Animated and INTERACTIVE by snazzie-designz

The original animation was an auto play animation, and the pauses
 on the pages were purposefully done too quickly to read the poems
so that you would go Aldwarke's gallery and read the poems there,
 and ideally fave them all!!!

However, on his request I have now made the book INTERACTIVE so
 that you can read the poems, and click onto the next or previous page
 with the mouse. I've also added an index page with all of the poems
listed so that you can pick your favourites and go to them directly.

Handmade Coptic Bound Haiku Book by snazzie-designz
This is a one off hand made Coptic bound book inspired by the haiku
collection of :iconaldwarke: aldwarke.

The front cover is bamboo with 5 different veneers, and pyrographed

The back cover has the Kanji for "Haiku" 俳句 pyrographed onto a
marquetry cover. I'm not sure what the the central veneer is
pearlescent and glimmers in the light.

In the inside pages there is a collection of Aldwarke's haiku and short
poems that I illustrated.
I've done up an animation simulating the book opening so that you can
see the pages illustrated.

Nymph Pyrograph (Wood Burning) by snazzie-designz
Nymph pyrograph burned into Baltic pine wood. Original artwork by
Josephine Wall. The image was used
for non-commercial use. The stunning frame was hand made by
:iconaldwarke: aldwarke and is made of sapele wood, which
glistens like copper in the light. Work in progress picture for anyone
interested in a better look at the burn lines.

Hand made frame and fan and pyrograph by snazzie-designz

Custom hand made frame and fan by :iconaldwarke: aldwarke
with a ukiyo-e pyrograph (wood burning) by me. Inspired by the Toshi
Yoshida woodblock print "Spring". "Hakubai ni Mau" translates as
"Flying around the Plum Tree".

The Covenant Journals

The Covenant

The latest WellSnazzie collaboration, and this is a big one!
It all began with this magical slice of pine wood, from a fallen tree
in the sacred site of Monasterboice, Ireland. After 2 years of looking
at it sitting in my kitchen waiting for just the right piece of inspiration
to do justice to this very special slice of wood, it finally hit me.
As many of you know aldwarke and I have collaborated on a
number of projects now (links below) and usually my talented
collaborator makes marvelous wooden pieces (frames, boxes etc) and I
have the great joy of decorating them with pyrography (wood burning).
This collaboration was slightly different. What many people may not
realise is that not only is aldwarke a master craftsman, but is also
a beautiful writer and has a gallery full of delightful an
The Covenant Artwork 
The artwork is all my own original design inspired by the story
(though the couple were inspired by some royalty free clip art).
The sun is on one side, and the moon on the other, and the leaves of
the rowan tree range from autumnal oranges and yellows to summer
and spring greens to try and encapsulate the timelessness of the story.
I especially like that the apple tree spirit was not purposefully drawn in
by me, but appeared of his own accord.  The text "shoot" has a little
shoot of a rowan tree growing out of it.
The couple in the tree is an homage to our previous Triptych
