an old photo of the los angeles public library 1960’s on the right and the old crumbling “gutenberg” marquee poster i carried home from paris in 2005. i have gotten more mileage out of that poster than anything in my paper arsenal. anything!
that’s because it was so huge! in the early years i made color copies and used those instead of the original, but now i just rip off pieces of the delicate paper and sew them where i please.
the sea captain and his wife miniature portraits – from photos i took at the becoming america exhibit at the huntington. artist unknown.
very happy to have the captain and the missus inside the pages of my quirky sewn book. i plan to get to know them v. v. well.
and from the classroom i present a unicorn drawn on the inside cover of someone’s sketchbook.
someone else drew this on a white board. so fabulous!
i dashed home and started sewing old sketchpad scraps onto other paper.
what are you doing? something good i bet.
