Incantamenta is Latin for incantation, the pages contain a selection of Latin and Greek magic spells
This books is one example of my work with salt dough. I found that the salt dough resembles much an
organic material, skin, and flesh, and bone. Here I use the material to create an ancient look. The salt
dough pages are held together by a slack stab binding with leather cord. They are then wrapped in a
leather end piece which closes with the help of leather cords and bone beads. Written uwith ink in a
mix of colours
. Finished in December 2008.
