Books made of pockets!

My studio is in major disarray from my years “away.” In the process of re-organizing it I’ve been discovering work that I did in the past. Today it’s these tiny books made of pockets. In these two small handmade books, each page is a pocket containing a tag. Each decorative tag has space for your writing.

On the left is a book made of maps of Columbia County, NY, and photos from Chatham, NY.  There is a metal compass ornament on the front, and a tiny metal clocktower hangs near the top of the spine.  Each pocket features different towns and villages in the County.  Colorful glass beads decorate the cord that fastens the book shut. The book on the right has a floral motif, and is fastened with a ribbon and vintage button. The Columbia County book has twelve pockets and is 4.5″ X 3.25″ x .5″.The floral book has seven pockets and is 4.75 x 3.25 x .75″.
