More book pages.

Front and back this time.

I’m not quite sure what these are about – let’s call them samples – possibly working towards one of the ‘resolved samples’ for the 3D unit of the degree – if a book is 3D? Some of these pages are definitely lumpy…

Mostly, it’s just playing with scraps and bits and seeing what happens. I am getting interested in what happens on the back, though – the unintended mark making resulting from the intended mark making on the ‘right’ side. Like the backs of the fly stitches to the right, which are really quite interesting.



I’ve also been experimenting with a Cas Holmes technique for image transfer. It is especially experimental because I’ve used some hand dye which is quite strongly coloured – while the images [some of my photos from India] aren’t, because the ink cartridge is running out – as usual. And although Holmes tells you to use closely woven fabric – the top piece isn’t.

So there may not be much to show tomorrow!
