Earth Magic handmade books

I've recently released a limited edition handmade book of my witchcraft-themed series of photographs, "Earth Magic." Each book contains 13 tipped-in archival inkjet prints on pages with offset printed black and metallic copper borders. The original photographs were taken with the wet plate collodion process (glass plate negatives).
