Monochrome Book


Concertina style art book made up of teeny tiny pages, 4″ x 4″, mixed media art on both sides, vilene/stiffener in between, stitched, with a ribbon on both sides to hold it shut when not in use.

Front cover – I decided to add a plastic layer on the top and back for protection [the beads stick out on the front]

All pages are hand painted papers – most have been stencilled, stamped, mono printed and some are also collaged. Some papers were recycled laser prints of knitting graphs and music.monochrome-book-008Hand embroidery on tapestry canvas.
