Book du jour - Nightgown

Years ago in a papermaking course I did a lot of embossed squares, some using parts of a favourite nightgown. The 5" mold available was so lovely to work with...

After scanning them in and a bit of layout in Indesign, I printed them out on ordinary paper -
Cut them apart and re-joined into a long strip -
A close-up - rather eerie ...
In a black mountboard cover, the black background makes sense. I'll try scanning with a white background, and printing on better paper.

This has nothing to do with my "everyday journeys" project, but some book fairs are coming up.

It seems a folder map. Your works are very interesting.
