The Missing Typewriter Key - Reveal

 It is almost two months since I posted off my little books
around the globe - I hope they have all arrived safe and sound by now.

So, herewith, my reveal
of my little concertina fold book
made from paper, card, stationery tags,
found &/ created images and shellac,
all tied up in handmade slip boxes and
tied up with red ribbon.
All the cut out circles represent
missing typewriter keys and
the images chosen are representative
of people/creatures/objects
missing in our present day world.
Things from the past which are lost
and can not be retrieved.

I had great fun making my first edition of books
and working through the processes to reach my final production.
It has been an educational and enjoyable lesson/journey for me
and I am looking forward to meeting up with
some of my fellow BAOers again today
when we head in to the State Library of Queensland
to have a close up look at some of the
Artist Books from their extensive collection.

I am delighted with my book too. It is really lovely and beautifully made. And as I said before, I was delighted to see that no typewriters were hurt in the making of the book :-)
