I've been playing around with bookcovers. Since I work at a used bookstore I have access to so many components that would otherwise land in the dump. Really old books that are falling apart can be de-constructed and used for the creation of so much art. I especially love leather books. But time can be so cruel to them. When that happens, the next logical step is to save as much of them as I can. I made these pieces out of lovely covers that have an amazing appearance all of their own. These leather covers just screamed out to be transformed. I obliged. There's plenty of color play and texture on them. Metallic paints and Pearl Ex give them both a shiny appearance. I have no idea what I'm going to do with them now. I've never framed any of my pieces, wonder how they'll look if I do. May have to give it a go.
I've placed them at the very end of the blog.
Enjoy looking and let me know what you think of them.
