Now I See

The title for this horizontal book comes from a favourite poem of Margaret Atwood's called Resurrection [link here] that I used in a video years ago. She, very kindly, had given me permission to do so. At that time I loved taking video stills and reworking them in the studio and on the computer. With this book I wanted to solve some of the technical dramas I have with the accordion structure and also see how large was workable as a book. So the way I made and attached the cover had to change. I glued just the back page to the back cover and I like it, it works, but the size is still an issue. Some of the pages are strong and some are weaker [all the pages are test prints that I have been gathering as I clean out my flat files] and they can't seem to stand evenly; an easily solved problem if I do another large book, use very heavy paper or back each page with another colour. What I haven't figured out is how to do this. If anyone has any ideas I would be thrilled to hear them.

    1. Thanks so much Connie, and very sorry for the tardy reply!

  2. More delights .. the colour, the juxtaposition of images and, of course, the wonderful words. I love what you're doing here - up-cycling to make things of beauty - lovely!

    1. Thanks so much Charlton and as I said to Connie so sorry about the tardy reply. Re-cycling is the way to go with the added plus of experimenting!


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
