Imagine if the twigs, leaves, and bits of metals on the streets around you weren't waste but ingredients for a rich palette of unfolding color. 

Founder of Toronto Ink Company, Jason Logan invites readers to discover Make Ink, a part art book and part how-to. Make Ink is a color journey that redefines our everyday understanding of ink, and, in the process, teaches us to reclaim a lost urban wilderness. It's a journey that emboldens readers to get their hands dirty foraging for color in woodlands, back alleys, and city parks; mixing pigments in the kitchen; and testing our their homemade colors on paper in the studio. Clear step-by-step and color-by-color recipes draw on medieval alchemy, domestic science, and ecological cookery.
