Collection of
                  Five Little Books
This collection of five unique little books are made from odds and ends in my studio. 
I bound each using a drum-fold, paste technique.  This means that papers are glued together making each page a double thickness and, thus, resistant to ink bleed through.

                  Bamboo Books
The covers of these books are from wall covering samples.  The covering on the left is vinyl and the one on the right is a bamboo-like weave. 
I made the embellishment on the left from a substance called "paper clay," which I molded, let dry, and painted with acrylic paints. Its pages are a gold marbled color.
The flowers on the right I cut from a scrap of decorative plastic "paper" and glued a jewel in the center of each.  The yarn on the right came from an "end" I was given.  Its paper is also gold marbled.
The book on the left measures approximately 5.1" x 2.75" x .25"; on the right, approximately 4.5" x 2.5" x .25".

Back to the Top Heart and Star
The cover of this book is made from a remnant of fabric I was given of several "frames."  I further enhanced the cover with part of a discarded jewelry pin.
The pages are a gold marbled color.
The book measures approximately 4.75" x 3.25" x .25".

                  Tomato Books
Both these books have copies of my own original drawings on their covers.  On the left is my pen and marker mandala drawing and on the right is my soft pastel drawing of ripe garden tomatoes.  A copy of the tomatoes is on both the front and back covers.  The book on the left has a base covering of a decorative plastic "paper."  The mandala book measures approximately 2.9" x 2.75" x .3".  The tomato book measures approximately 2.5" x 3.6" x .2".
