I made this journal for a piece entitled "Debris Quilt." The leather / suede cover came from a journal cover that a friend of my daughters gave me about 5 years ago. I put old maps, foreign newspapers, vintage book pages, and other bits of paper ephemera in there. Wrapped the entire piece in twine and burned it with the blow torch for good measure.
Whenever I pass this piece in the hallway I always smile at that journal and I want to create more.
In the spring we unearthed a box of old architectural drawings and mylars in my garage. When I opened the box I immediately knew I wanted to create some journals out of these large drawings. So over the next week I will create some journals for my Archeological Remnants series. As always, I will post the progress along the way.
