Titled 'Let's Go Fishing,' this handcrafted collage includes old bits and pieces from old books, expired hunting and fishing licenses and ephemera. Created on an hardback book cover, stitching and ink marks have been added. The back side is covered in rice paper. This lovely piece can be displayed in a small easel or framed and hung on your wall.
Every collage I make is unique and different. Yours will be signed and dated, then carefully wrapped in a protective cellophane sleeve and shipped in a rigid mailing envelope.
Inspired by stacks of discarded old books and papers with interesting text, images, graphics and history, old books are deconstructed, then bits and bobs are hand cut and sorted by color. I'll experiment with the design until I create an aesthetically pleasing arrangement. I'll let it rest for a few days, then return and adjust the design if needed. Oftentimes, ink, pencil and thread are added to provide additional interest and texture.

Great condition! Remember, the inherent nature of handmade collage art is the imperfection of the ingredients used. You may see loose threads, bumps, and surface wear that are all part of the design.
