 The Toronto Ink Company was founded in 2014 by designer and artist Jason Logan as a citizen science experiment to make eco-friendly, urban ink from street-harvested pigments. In Make Ink, Logan delves into the history of inkmaking and the science of distilling pigment from the natural world.

Readers will learn how to forage for materials such as soot, rust, cigarette butts, peach pits, and black walnut, then how to mix, test, and transform these ingredients into rich, vibrant inks that are sensitive to both place and environment. Chapters include:
A Forager’s Checklist
What Is Ink and How Is It Make
Natural Ink: A Basic Recipe
Colors and Recipes
The Ground Rules of Natural Inkmaking
Testing Ink on Paper
And more!
