1940's Children's Book....

















Treadmills
This little book is in the new Somerset Studio Gallery/ Winter 2007. I made it sometime ago and can finally post the pics:D This little book is about 5" X 5" in size and made up of collage materials and images from vintage children's books. It so reminded me of my childhood.....simply, safe and secure:D

I love your book! It was a good idea to do it as an accordion too, so the images can be viewed all at once. I also love how you've used the ribbons. Yes, it makes me think of my childhood, and all the things I used to love before I became ashamed of things that were too girly.
congradulations on it being in summerset!
