Making Books to Take to Australia

These are some of the books I have made for the market place at the teaching venues next month in Australia. The cloth ones are made using yardage I bought there several years ago from a fabric store in Alice Springs. The designer was at Mittigong NSW and told me about her shop. Her color schemes and lovely little animals unique to Australia were irresistible. Each in his own framed space made them perfect for small book covers.

The green leather ones are made from kangaroo hide I bought there a long time ago at a leather goods place in Brisbane when Adele Outeridge took me off to some her favorite places. I even found the brown kangaroo hide lashes there.


And this is one of the twelve altered white line relief prints with stitches and materials also collected in Australia. Each one has an envelope with part of a relief print made here in my studio.
