This brown bag paper book is a work-in-progress. I was inspired by some comments in the Altered Books Yahoo group. The comments reminded me
of my childhood in another century in a very poor country. I have only brown paper bags to write on. I used to iron them to make notebooks for my little brother and myself.
This book is kind of homage to an old memory. I used sepia colors and
images that remind journey (maybe through, time, places, or states of
mind). I also used cats and ladies from another era because I love them!!!
I did the collage on both sides of the bags and the final assemblage is in accordion form.
