Marcy Erb at Illustrated Poetry and I have been blog friends for years, and even better, we have actually met in person, some years ago. Our most recent doings involve an artist book project collaboration that has had a long history – I think we got it started in 2016? Maybe? If you want all the details, look here for my first post about the project, where I give more information.
Now, here are some more pages. I seem not to have separate images, so you can just take a look at them as a page spread.
As a note, Marcy is a scientist, and by coincidence this book was a very outdated non-fiction book on atomic energy. Interesting, that serendipity! You can see evidences of the book’s subject in the bits of text and illustration I incorporated.
More images to show you in another post!
So much fun to explore this!! 👏♥️👏
Charming illustrations and I really like the way the original text from the book is peeking through and that you have added other print text too.
Thank you, I thought adding some text of my own would fit in with the random words I left in the images. The actual meaningful text sort of sneaks in.
Delightfully quirky. That’s a compliment.
Thank you. These books seem to bring out the “anything goes” feeling in me.
