Flights of Fancy, Volume II
“Flights of Fancy” explores a multi-media approach to bookmaking. The pages have been painted and stenciled with patterns and bird forms. The text is cut from pages of translucent vellum, spelling out the names of a multitude of birds. Pages are hand sewn and contained by hard covers. The fibrous paper that adorns the covers is reminiscent of nesting material. Strips of copper tape accent the cover.
A box, similarly covered, houses the book when not in use.
Dimensions: 5.5” x 5” x 1.75”, boxed
