details of my favourite page

Sometimes things just work - as they did for me on that page - I love the green and the texture.....I'm all about texture. I recently met a few cinematographers willing to work with me on my puppet film - I showed them all photographs of my work . The one who said ..." Oh, I love the texture..." got the job - she saw what really want to get across in a visual way ...Kasia - you will hear more about her soon as we get into the Flower Hunter project .....anyway side tracked completely ...the green page is my favourite page to date - my previous post explains the project. I really like the fact that i hadn't planned anything - it was all born out of that colour and the beautiful paper my dearest friend from Thailand had brought for me. The figures are actually from wrapping paper - wow ! That's what I call wrapping paper.

a book about hand made books

I made this funny book without any planning as a proposal for a book festival then I sent it away into the world.
It was really a lovely feeling to get up one day and produce a book - I used all sorts of bits and pieces as usual - wood, fabric, lots of interesting paper and a few of my photos -
The book talks about the surprising amount of people who would like to make a book , people like to make them with their children, cooks and geneologists like to share their secrets, poets and artists like to show their work in a new stories which need to be told all end up as hand made books.
Its beautiful, a singular experience and I highly recommend it
