"A Sense of Place" detail

Detail of book when closed.

These are some images of my Chinese star book entitled "A Sense of Place".  I wanted to do a piece that captured the encompassing horizon of mountains we enjoy in our environment here in the Canadian Rockies.  The book is constructed of layers of delicate papers made from all natural materials, overlaid with retro-feeling images full of buttery light transferred onto translucent vellum.  The block is hand stitched.  All images used in the book were created by me.  The book when closed is 5 x 3 1/2 x 1 inches.
