Blue again

As the Field Guide to Getting Lost has been so important in my "Blue Distance" piece, I'm looking for a way to include it in the actual exhibition.

One of my "boxes" will be a bookshelf, a mini-library, of the books I've made that relate to memory, and the book could be part of that - but it needs something doing to it that will make part of the "disintegration" that is the theme of my show.

Wrapping seems appropriate. Threads will hold closed some of the the chapters, and leave the "blue of distance" chapters readable in their entirely. The photo is a trial, quickly done with some threads that were handy. What colour to use? There are so many shades of blue...
