Making little books, a bit of an obsession!


I’m just back from a few weeks in Italy which has proved very productive! I got a second wind half way through when I found a bit of a stash of old papers, magazines and letters probably from around the ’50’s and 60’s. One persons rubbish is another persons gold dust! I started making little books using the found papers and a range of cyanotype prints I had made of flora, fauna and objects from the surrounding hillside and places I visited. In total I have made nine books during my stay, three in a tin left for my friend , one posted to another friend who is very involved with mail art and the rest came home with me.
