You might remember (or note above) that I mentioned in the intro that I learned book-making from my sister, Marilyn Worrix. Marilyn lives in Oregon and is one of the organizers of an important bi-annual book arts conference (which, in fact, started today). For every conference, there is a gallery show of artists' books done by the faculty and staff. Marilyn always tries to make something special for that show.
And boy did she out-do herself this time! This is as much a piece of sculpture as it is a book. And I about fell out of my chair when she emailed my a picture of it.
Here it is. Click on the image to get a larger version:
After this, I may not make another book for the rest of my life. My attempts here seem embarrassing by comparison. (No, I'll keep going, just maybe try to aim a little higher.)
Hope you enjoy seeing this. Can you tell I'm a proud sister???
P.S.: I'll post my book for today a little later, as soon as I can get it to do what I want it to do!
