Book of leaves





I've sent a book of leaves to Ana, for inspiration. We'll exhibit in Bologna next year, during the Children Book Fair, at Hamelin.

STUDIO VIOLET Winter/Christmas offer!

What a beautiful idea. And the cover of that book is gorgeous. I too wish someone would send me one, I would be a happy camper.

oh! and my word verification is "moran". So fitting don't you think.

Inspiration is sure to be found from these things sent. Here's to your collaboration with Ana, and new things brewing for the coming year.

so sweet! I like how the leaf stems protrude beyond the book page edges.... just hinting at their presence...

My mom used to fill the books with leaves. As I grew up it was great to open a book from the shelf and see all the very thin yellow leaves. Some of them were too delicate and almost shreded to the touch. Your post has brought up beautiful memories of evenings at home.

That is such a lovely idea. I think I'll make one for myself and then maybe one day gift it to someone.

nice to meet you to!
And a beautiful book! I like it when I look in a book and discover some leaves I put there years ago...

You and Anna will find out a great inspiration in those travelling leaves, inprisioned in leaves of words.
