The Book of Ephemera

I completed it the other night, after -

hand-tearing, tea staining, drying & pressing the pages... 
folding them into sections, groups of 5...
hearing them whisper as they nestled into eachother, now for life...
binding them into crackly reclaimed coffee brown leather, with Irish linen thread.

then selecting pieces of vintage paper ephemera, 
(that I couldn't throw away because of...their sheer beauty)...
I added
snippets of a music score, 
parts of maps, bits of unidentified this and that.
ink stamps from my extensive collection...
all of which,
now chatter among the pages..

waiting for a friend.


I love to read your comments & thoughts!
