Here's a project that I didn't expect to like -- two very small faux books, wrapped in thread and sealed with wax.
The books fit inside a small collaged box.
The box started as a flat piece of cardboard, scored, folded and covered with bits of leftover paper. It reminds me of a wall pasted over with layers and layers of peeling posters.
Each 2 x 3 in. book consists of 100 dictionary pages, cut, folded, pasted and painted using water-soluble graphite. The wax makes them look old and mysterious, like ancient charms buried in an old Roman tomb.
I must make more!!!
