You old bag

Here's an idea given to me by Gill Carlsson, constructing a book out of old paper bags. On the day I made this I could only find 4 paper bags, so I filled the pages with greeting cards, tissue paper all the way from Las Vegas, transparencies and a multitude of other found papers. There's even a leaf skeleton in there to discover amongst the pages. A bit of a challenge to line the papers up for stitching, one night at the kitchen table with a glass of wine, but it came together and took on a life of it's own. I called it 'Old Bag', mean't to be a term of endearment.

Old Bag: paper bags, assorted found papers, dried leaf, transparency. Coptic bound. Unique.
