500 Handmade Books....including mine!

(Click on image above to enlarge.)

While I was in Maine the complimentary copy of Lark Publication's 500 Handmade Books arrived. It is a fabulously inspirational text full of amazing images. Creativity runs rampant over the pages...including 219! That page features my fiber vessel full of wrapped and stitched text (mostly foreign) called Some Things I'll Never Know. I created this work in 2005 and sold it nearly two years ago to Suzy Sheffield. Suzy recently bought another one of my books, Buffon, Picasso, and Me. She is also catering the reception for CYBER FYBER!

This week I've been swamped with framing...totally overloaded but managing to sneak most of the work created in Maine into the pile. I've done a little stitching on my grave rubbing quilt and hope to post it soon!

I hope you get a little time out this weekend after such a busy time. Congratulations on your inclusion in the new book.

I am looking forward to seeing your grave rubbings quilt. I love to explore churchyards and have quite a lot of photographs. I have done wax crayon rubbings but never in a graveyard so maybe I will give this a try. One of these days I will get to Highgate Cemetry in London which has many Victorian monuments.

I wonder, if I ironed my wax crayon rubbings onto fabric would they transfer? They are mostly of bark and wall surfaces. I shall have to have a go. (Sorry thinking out loud in your space. lol)

It is wonderful to know that you are included in the book. So, in thousands of years, when explorers unearth it, you will be part of history. Wonderful legacy. Did you get my ATC? I hope so. I mailed it quite a long time ago.
