Another Little Book



I have made another little mixed media book about my emotions and thoughts as I go through this time.  This one has fewer words, only the embroidered words "endure", "hope", "gratitude" and "peace". I'm not sure what this book format is called, but it's basically an accordion book in which you glue every two pages together, thereby making more traditional "book" format; this one has only 8 pages total.  I then made a cover and glued that on, making each page 2 papers thick. It is constructed of Rives BFK.
