New from Brittany Nicole Cox
Sacred Geometry – a 16th Century Coloring Book
Brittany Nicole Cox, an ornamental turner (and more) from Seattle Washington collaborated with Al Collins of Lawndale, California on a new idea. The result of their work was this unique coloring book. It is a compilation of machine-drawn patterns generated by a rose engine. Rose engines are hand-operated machines that were developed in the 16th century and used during the Victorian era for the decorative turning of wood, ivory, metal, and ceramics. See Photo 1.
The geometry of the patterns is determined by mathematical sequences often associated with sacred geometry and the golden mean. The MADE Ornamental Rose Engine Lathe, a modern machine designed in the tradition of the past, was used to create these patterns. See Photo 2.
The front and back covers are letterpress, the front with copper foil. The binding is copper wire, allowing the book to lay flat as you color. The 72 unique patterns are printed on 180lb uncoated white paper – so your coloring utensils won’t bleed through and colors stay true. This book is limited to 300 copies and was handmade in Seattle Washington.
The book is available in limited quantities. The list price is $30 plus shipping.
For the technically interested, we’ve put together a book of receipts. This lists the steps for how to generate each pattern on the rose engine. See Photo 3.
The receipts book is also available in limited quantities. The list price is $40 plus shipping.
