Preserved Lemons Cookbook

Preserved Lemons Cookbook - student project

I've always wanted to make a book of favorite recipes for my family (who all enjoy cooking).  Taking the Sketchbook Magic Skillshare class inspired me to make this small zine version my first attempt.  I haven't drawn or painted in over 30 years, so this was a lot of effort on a lot of levels - but so glad I was able to complete it!!!

I used rather large heavy weight paper cut in half and folded again in half.  On the next one, I will plan better for how the zine will open, these heavy pages are hard to keep open.  I will need more margin space and will rule the inner edges before finishing so that the pages will stay open better.  I also used a different binding, but I don't think that makes a difference in the opening issue, might affect how well the holes hold up over time....

Each zine was gifted with a jar of homemade preserved lemons and a bottle of Moroccan wine!
