Heat (and Books)

Jo of Mystory has inspired me with books.
I love making them but sometimes confused as to their purpose if not to write in them.This one marries the two ideas, discarded drawings coloured over then used as notebooks.

Here is a couple of pages from a fun book I made...I seem to have a few of these, they are such fun to do but I am not sure if I will write on them.

This next one came from a class where I asked my classmates to give me a little piece of detritus from their workspace to put in the pockets.

I love using all different papers, that way I also feel I am not being wasteful.

I like pockets and this has used an envelope in the front to keep things

For travelling books I need a larger pocket.This is just a cover on a work book.

For those locals "stay cool"

Janette, what a colourful post of all your wonderful books.
I think they are just nice to hold and contemplate on...just like looking at a painting or sculpture. They can say allot these "wordless" artist books.
The pocket style is clever! Changes the book to being more functional...
Glad to be able to return the 'inspiration' Joxx

I love these books Janette! What fun you must be having. Artist books are one of my passions. I hope you are staying cool, as well. I am bundled up and have 2 fires burning, and 2 heaters. Funny isn't it?

It's hard to think of heat from this side of the world - damp and brrrrrr! But lovely to think of your sunshine too! Love your pockets and what you are doing - have a look at my book art collaboration! Glad I've found a kindred spirit
