The above image is a digital composite of a series of drawings made upon the pages of my personal copy of The Brothers Karamazov by Fyodor Dostoyevsky. Once framed they will appear as they do above.

The drawings are made by rubbing away mulberry paper that has been glued to the book’s pages. The dimensions are 54 x 34.
