My Artist Book

For my next project, I will be creating an Artist Book. I have chosen to showcase my version of 'A Rakes'Progress' along with the corresponding text.

However, I have already hit a snag with trying to sort out what paper to use. I wanted to emboss the paper and this is turning out to be a problem. I cannot emboss after I have printed the image as the ink will run. If I do it the other way by printing after I have embossed; the paper will not only warp but it will be too thick to feed through the printer, and I cannot iron it out as it will affect the embossed image.

Next try will be on Matt 150gsm paper. Hopefully, this time I will have some success with the printer.
