“22”





Mainly sneak peaks here folks


The inside portion of the cover after cutting and reconditioning as per the previous post







The first page is revealed






What’s inside?




Ahh this that took me forever to rivet together because of the curve




You cannot imagine how long that took to make for my bebe!





A message I engraved onto both wings






"De-sketches" using book spines and bits torn away from antique books stored away just for a piece like this



The story of us, symbolically told in this Visual Anthology™





Which I will be teaching in Philladelphia, thanks to Bee Shay, August 8 & 9



The workshop is for artists wanting to learn how to put their mixed media works, assemblages and shrines into a book form.


Within the class we will also learn lots of ageing techniques and we will spend time learning how it is that I put pages together and how I work symbolically...



Binding made from the softest kid leather, aged and created to fit the book covers.


To best put the book and pages together so they students can tell their story.


Email me if you are interested (email address is on my profile)



Hope to see you there!
Ciao
