Accordion books

 I've been making some 2X2" accordion books.  This one is Heritage.  birch bark, old photos, lace, monoprint, ink pad.
 Cover of Heritage.

 Target Peace.  Stamped with home made stamps and purchased stamps.

 Cover of Target Peace.

 Stamp pad pressed on paper.  purchased stamps.  I havent written on this one yet but I think the "theme" is poetry.

Cover of Poetry.  All covers made from purchased decorative papers.

I'm liking these very much. Isn't it fun to make your own books? I have so many that I've made over the years. Looks like you've been busy.

Oh, very fun! My favourite is the poetry one. Just as it is. No poems. Not that the poems will spoil it...especially your poems. But it's so perfectly self-contained and eloquent in and of itself.

Love those papers and the Asian signs. I always enjoy your art Suki. Glad to see you at it again!

Wonderful creating! I've been interested lately in making simple books. And there's that paper again. "Layers" (Donna Watson) said she got hers from Japan!

I love these in their simplicity .... an accordion book is such a wonderful design .... I love how these look all spread out like that

I don't think I've ever seen books this small, love it!
You have beautiful elements throughout all of these.
The only book I've made is our Girlfriends Traveling Sketchbook,
and I treasure it.

I have one if your harmonica books (heehee, but just as apt, don't you think?) you have such talent, suki, and you fold it into little sacred spaces.

Your collage work is just fantastic
