Above: The sign in pages on the left were created using vintage photo album pages and the the collage I kept from the series shown last post. This pic helps to put the size of them into perspective and helps me to see how they tie in with the rest of my book, the colours etc are very me! The right hand side of the top photo shows a partially bound signtaure and my note to the other artists. The copper piece is actually a plant name tag on a wire 'stake' of sorts. I picked up a packet of 6 in the supermarket for only $3.00! I love finds like that!
Above: My visual diary pages for this book. I've just realised that I have completely missed photographing one page...opps! I like this page because it really shows the difference my h.a.t print makes to the final look.( The h.a.t print is almost a Ghost print but not quite! thanks Mick for the info!) The actual cut is quite plain and not all that clever, it's the transformation that it undergoes with the h.a.t proceess that makes all the difference. Most of the library issue cards have poetry in the background. The words of the one shown here are in a pic below which you can enlarge to read if you wish!
I was never quite happy with the blank area above the nest on this page but a few lines of simple writing took care of that! I'm happy now:)
The company was gathered, and Life the auctioneer, stands up before the bidders, his hammer lying near.
"Lot One" he cries 'I offer is Time that's passing on, an Time my friends remember, is going, going- gone!
Two bidders fight to buy it, but not with Gold Accurst, they offer all their effort, their hunger and their thirst.
One means to use it nobly, the other for his boast. The hammer falls, he had it, who longed to get it most.
Click the photo if you want to read the rest of the poem, it's a a lovely poem I found in a child's encyclopedia and didn't want to cut up!
