Handmade Book


My latest art project is this little book. The pages are handmade paper by Alicia Telfer.



The picture of the woman on the cover is the work of DJ Pettitt (with a necklace added by me). I love using DJ's artwork in my collages. If you want to see some gorgeous handmade books, please check out her blog. She's fantastic.



I'm drawn to religious and spiritual imagery from all religions.

The text in the pictures above and below is from the book Thoughts on Solitude by Thomas Merton.



The text below is a poem by e.e. cummings.


The picture of the Buddha is a Pier One tag that was attached to a frame I bought.

What interesting pictures you've made.

(Yes, I think California might be rather a long way from Edinburgh for a 4-day holiday!)
